FRANCE SAYS IRAN BALLISTIC MISSILE PROGRAMME A MAJOR CONCERN

France's foreign ministry said on Sunday that Iran's ballistic missile programme was a major concern, a day before foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian was due to visit Tehran.

The ministry said it wanted Iran to contribute in a "positive" manner to solving crises in the Middle-East.

"In this regard the crisis in Syria and the humanitarian situation there will particularly be discussed along with other regional issues where Iran is involved (Yemen, Libya, Iraq)", the ministry added.
