"We have repeatedly told French officials that the JCPOA (the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) is not negotiable and other issues will not be included in it", Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Saturday.

"The missile that was intercepted by Saudi Arabia launched from Yemen, which obviously is an Iranian missile, shows precisely the strength of their" weapons program, Macron said on November 9.

"France is fully aware of our country's firm position that Iran's defense affairs are not negotiable", he said.

Macron in his visit to the region appeared to be positioning himself as an intermediary - a role he has also assumed in trying to mediate disputes between Iran and the United States over the 2015 nuclear deal.

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.

The National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Majlis, the Iranian parliament, also responded to the French President.

Lebanon, a former French colony, has become the latest front line of the power struggle between Saudi Arabia and Iran. He then mentioned that "there are extremely strong concerns about Iran" among its Arab neighbors in the Persian Gulf.

The ballistic missile launched Saturday night flew near Riyadh's global airport before Saudi officials say they shot it down. The missile had been fired by Yemen's Houthi Ansarullah movement, which has been defending the impoverished country against a deadly Saudi-led invasion since March 2015.

The United Nations, along with dozens of other aid groups, are raising alarm at the blockade imposed on Yemen by the the U.S. -backed, Saudi-led coalition there, saying Thursday it could lead to "the largest starvation the world has seen for many decades".

Iran denies the charges and blames the conflict on Riyadh.

The attack, the first of its kind, has shaken the kingdom, triggering frenzied accusations by Saudi leaders that the missile had been built in Iran.
