Ali Akbar Velayati, foreign policy advisor to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, criticised Le Drian´s position on Saturday, just two days before they are expected to meet.

He added Iran will not let interference in its affairs.

Russian Federation and the other parties to the Iran nuclear deal consider the Islamic Republic compliant and have voiced concerns over Washington's stance.

While Iran has accepted curbs on its nuclear work - which it claims is for purely peaceful purposes - it has repeatedly refused to discuss its missile program, something the United States and European countries have called for.

"You know that the Iranian people have good memories of the Japanese people, and Japan is an important country for Iran, and because of this, it has an important place", he said, referring to his former meetings with Japan's foreign minister and Shinzo Abe and other officials.

The Trump administration has panned the nuclear deal - signed by the U.S., the U.K., France, Germany, Russia, China, and Iran - for not addressing what it says are Tehran's "destabilizing" activities in the Middle East, including missile testing and support for terrorist groups. The deal, which doesn't cover Iran's missile program, stipulates the removal of anti-Tehran sanctions in exchange for Iran staying away from pursuing a military nuclear program.

"What Americans say out of desperation about exerting restrictions on Iran's missile capabilities is their unreachable dream", Deputy Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said on Saturday, Xinhua reported.

Last month, French President Emmanuel Macron said that "Iran should be monitored for its ballistic missiles programme".
