TEHRAN, Iran – Iran says it will continue its ballistic missile program after claims made by the U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon that its missile tests aren't in the spirit of the country's landmark nuclear deal with world powers.

In comments published on Iran's foreign ministry website Saturday, spokesman Bahram Ghasemi says that "Iran will strongly continue its missile program based on its own defense and national security calculations."
