Iran Tests New Ballistic Missile, State Media Reports

State television carried footage of the launch of the Khoramshahr missile, which was first displayed at a high-profile military parade in Tehran on Friday.

President Hassan Rouhani reviews a military parade held on Friday in Teheran to mark the 37th anniversary of the 1980 invasion of Iran by Iraq, in front of the shrine of the late revolutionary founder, Ayatollah Khomeini.

An Iranian news agency said one of the weapons on display at the parade was a new ballistic missile with range of 2,000 km (1,200 miles), capable of carrying several warheads.

The United States extended sanctions relief for Iran last week as part of the agreement, which President Donald Trump has described as "the worst deal ever".

"We can not let a murderous regime continue these destabilising activities while building unsafe missiles and we can not abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear programme", he said.

On Saturday, Hatami stressed that Iran will wait for the permission of no country to boost its deterrent power, and will continue to produce different missiles and warfare systems.

"Whether you like it or not, we are going to defend the oppressed peoples of Yemen, Palestine and Syria", he said.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said earlier this month that Iran has had multiple violations of the resolution when it comes to the development of ballistic missile technology.

TEHRAN-Iran said it had tested a new medium-range ballistic missile, the day after unveiling it in defiance of US criticism over its disputed nuclear program.

The particular move was obviously a one on one challenge to the US Leader Donald Trump, whom around August finalized a bill imposing compulsory fees and penalties upon individuals involved with Iran's ballistic missile program in addition to anybody who does any business with people active in the program.

Rouhani has accused Trump of attempting to sabotage the landmark nuclear accord between Iran and six world powers.

Washington is due to announce on October 15 whether it considers Iran is still complying with the agreement.

Iran has denied that its missiles would be used to carry a nuclear warhead. "The nuclear deal is the result of long negotiations and it is supported by the UN Security Council and many countries". Netanyahu vowed to fight what he described as "an Iranian curtain" descending on the Middle East, and pledged to prevent Iran from producing any weapons that could hit Israel.
