TEHRAN, April 27 (Xinhua) -- Iran is capable of producing intercontinental missiles thanks to its scientific development, a senior Iranian diplomat said on Wednesday.

""Today, our scientific power has provided us with the opportunity to even produce intercontinental missiles,"" Hamid Baeidinejad, the Iranian Foreign Ministry's director general for political affairs, was quoted as saying by Press TV.

""Our country's power is increasing, and today we have no restrictions in defense fields, as in our missile program, we have no technical limits anymore,"" said Baeidinejad, who is also former Iranian nuclear negotiator.

Stressing that Iran's military doctrine is based on deterrent policies, he said that unlike the military policies of other countries in the region and major powers in the world, Iran's military doctrine is not after an escalation of threats in the region or the world.

He hailed the achievements of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in defense areas, saying that the IRGC is the backbone of the country's military security.

Earlier, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif dismissed U.S. officials' remarks against Iran's missile program, saying Iran would never negotiate over its missile program as it was a matter of national defense.

The White House is critical of Iran's missile program and deems it a threat to regional and world peace.

However, the Islamic republic said that its missile program is totally for peaceful purposes and no measure can strip it of its legitimate and legal rights to boost its defensive capabilities and to safeguard national security.


RAMALLAH, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- The Palestinian National Authority (PNA) has officially demanded that Britain annul the Balfour Declaration and instead issue a new one recognizing Palestinian rights, said a Palestinian official on Wednesday.

The Balfour Declaration confirms the British government's support for establishing a "national home" for Jewish people in Palestine.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said in statements to the Palestinian official radio station, Voice of Palestine, that he made the official request during his meeting with his British counterpart Boris Johnson in London earlier this week.

Malki added "we demanded from the British side to issue a new declaration that would end the 99-year-old vow in which Britain commits itself for the Palestinian people's right to self determination, its support to the establishment of a Palestinian state and recognizing it."

"We discussed the historical responsibility of Britain towards the consequences of the Balfour Declaration and the necessary apology, if it had the courage to undertake its responsibility towards what happened to the Palestinian people as a result of the Declaration," said the minister.

Today marks the 99th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, which is the name given to the letter dated Nov. 2, 1917, sent from the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary back then, Arthur James Balfour, to Lord Lionel Walter Rothschild, head of the British Jewish community at the time.

The Balfour Declaration was developed following three years of negotiations between the British Government, the British Jewish community and the Zionist Organization before it was dispatched as a letter to be signed by Arthur Balfour.

The letter was presented to U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, who approved its content before its publication, and was officially approved by France and Italy in 1918, then publicly adopted by President Wilson in 1919, as well as Japan.

In 1920, it was adopted by the San Remo Conference which was held following the end of World War I and the Declaration was incorporated into the British Mandate.

Sam Querrey sent hobbling -defending champion Andy Murray crashing out of Wimbledon on Wednesday , reaching his first Grand Slam semifinal at the 42nd attempt.

One year after knocking out 2015 champion Novak Djokovic in the third round, 29-year-old Querrey, the world No.28 , won 3-6, 6-4, 6-7 (47) , 6-1, 6-1.

World No.1 Murray's challenge petered out when he began limping off his right leg, his movement severely compromised by a recent hip problem.

"I'm still in a state of shock. I'm glad I hit that last serve in ," said Querrey who finished with 27 aces and 70 winners.

"I didn't start the best but I just kept swinging away and found my groove in the last two sets."

Querrey is the first American man in the semifinals of a Grand Slam since Andy Roddick finished runner-up at Wimbledon in 2009.

"It feels great. It's a dream come true to be in the semi-final at Wimbledon, it's very special," Querrey added.

There was no sign of the drama to come at the start of Wednesday's match.

Murray , 30, was supreme in the first set, carving out the key break for 2-0 and taking the opener on the back of just two unforced errors.

The Scot was a break to the good at 4-3 in the second set before Querrey unexpectedly reeled off three straight games to level the quarterfinal , firing 16 winners, twice as many as the top seed.

Murray restored his lead -after Querrey played a sloppy tiebreaker in the third set.

However, the champion's afternoon on Center Court began to unravel as his movement -became increasingly limited.

Limping badly off his right leg , Murray was being run ragged and was broken three times in a 22-minute fourth set.

The fifth set followed a similar plot line, lasting 27 minutes as Murray won just one point off the American's serve.

Querrey will face former US Open champion Marin Cilic for a place in the final. Cilic reached his first Wimbl.
