The race to be Iran's next president kicks off
He also said that his nation doesn't need anyone's approval to build missiles - an obvious shot at the United States and attempt to answer conservative critics who claims he's too close to the West after negotiating the nuclear agreement.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad filed to run in Iran's upcoming presidential election, defying the wishes of the country's supreme leader that he not seek to return to the office.
"We will not take permission from any country or worldwide organization to develop our conventional defense power and we will confront any foreign interference in the defense affairs, including the Islamic Republic of Iran's missile power", Shamkhani said.

Just when it appeared Ahmadinejad would be leaving, he turned around and returned to the Interior Ministry's registration desk, pulling out his identification documents with a flourish in front of a melee of shouting journalists.
He is considered a close ally of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who past year appointed him to run the powerful charity-cum-business-empire Astan Qods Razavi (AQR), which oversees the Imam Reza shrine in the holy city of Mashhad.
