DUBAI - Iran said on Monday new US sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic's ballistic missile program were illegitimate because of Washington's arms sales in the Middle East.

"The US sanctions against Iran's ballistic missile program ... have no legal or moral legitimacy," foreign ministry spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari said in a televised news conference.
