Tehran (ISNA) – More than 70 percent of Iranian people are against stopping the development of Iran’s missile program, according to a poll conducted by IranPoll.

The telephone survey of 1,002 Iranians by IranPoll.com and the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland (CISSM) that was conducted Jan. 16-24showed that more than two-thirds of Iranians are in favor of developing Iran’s ballistic program and believe that Iranian missiles have a great importance.

According to the survey, most Iranians are against the US President Donald Trump's request to renegotiate on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). More than 64% said Iran shouldn’t accept renegotiation on its nuclear program.

Of those surveyed, 90.7 percent believe that the United States has not kept its commitments and has not lifted sanctions against Iran or indirectly prevented the achievement of the benefits of lifting sanctions.

According to the poll, more than 64 percent of Iranians insist that Iran's ballistic program is not negotiable and more than 70 percent of Iranians believe that Iran should not agree to stop its ballistic developments even with the threats of the sanctions of the United States. 73.8 per cent of participants also pointed out that Iran's ballistic program is very important.

The survey also shows that General Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps remains the most popular figure among regime figures. According to the poll, he is gaining in popularity with an 83% approval rating now compared to 73% two years ago.
