Iran said France's concern over Tehran's ballistic missile programme was "wrong", the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Sunday ahead of the arrival of French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian in Tehran.

"Iran is an independent country ... Its defensive missile work will continue ... France's concern over our missile programme is wrong," Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi told Fars.

France's foreign ministry said on Sunday that Iran's ballistic missile programme was a major concern.
