Tehran: Iran's official news agency says hard-line lawmakers have accused President Hassan Rouhani of halting a scheduled missile exercise.

The Sunday report by IRNA says 24 lawmakers in a statement said the Supreme National Security Council, headed by the president, stopped the annual test and did not approve its budget.

In a separate letter, the lawmakers accused Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif of preventing foreign experts to assist Iran with its missile technology, the semi-official Mehr news agency reported. It did not elaborate.

Hard-liners are at odds with Rouhani and Zarif over their policy of outreach with the West.
