Iranian President says world powers have admitted failure in stopping Iran’s nuclear progress.
 
Iran has made a laser-guided ballistic missile with increased range, according to its defense minister.

“The fixed precision of our long-range missiles has increased to the extent that we can hit every point we wish,” Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said on Sunday, according to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency.

He also said that the margin of error now is less than two meters for the missiles.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday that world powers have admitted failure in stopping Iran’s nuclear progress.

“Iran’s policy of constructive interaction with the world states has forced the world to see the realities of Iran’s capabilities,” Rouhani said according to Iran’s Fars News Agency.

“You see that those powers which were thinking of destroying Iran’s enrichment capability, have now admitted that they cannot stop Iran's industrial progress and enrichment due to the indigenization of this industry and its expansion,” he said.

A Chinese official met with Rouhani on Sunday and said that Iran has a right to peaceful use of nuclear energy, according to Chinese news agency Xinhua.

Both countries expressed their wishes to expand bilateral ties.

Rouhani also assured Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi that Iran’s nuclear program was peaceful and that it desires to solve the issue through negotiations.

“We respect Iran’s right to use nuclear energy, including the right of uranium enrichment,” said Jiechi according to Tasnim.
