Tehran - Iran's foreign minister is saying the country's missile programme is not up for negotiation with the United States.

The missile program and "defense capabilities of the Islamic Republic of Iran" are not negotiable, said Mohammad Javad Zarif on Sunday, after meeting with his Estonian counterpart, Marina Kaljurand.

He added that if Washington was "serious about defensive issues" in the Middle East, it would stop supplying arms to Saudi Arabia and Israel.

US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Thursday that the US and its regional allies were "prepared to work on a new arrangement to find a peaceful solution" to the dispute over recent Iranian missile tests.
