|Iran will not include ballistic missiles in nuclear deal: ex-Obama advisor||
TEHRAN – Robert Einhorn, the former advisor to U.S. President Barack Obama on arms control, has said that the Iranian ballistic missiles will not be part of a nuclear agreement between Tehran and the world powers.
In a Wednesday discussion with the Israel Policy Forum in Washington, Einhorn said that the Iranian position is that this negotiation is about the nuclear issue, not about the missile issue, RIA Novosti reported.
“I think this could be very difficult to get the Iranians to include a provision regarding their missile capabilities in the comprehensive nuclear deal. But I do think it makes sense, perhaps as a side deal, to press the Iranians to adopt certain restraints regarding their missile program,” he added.
