Iran joins North Korea, tests new ballistic missile

Rouhani addressed the parade in Tehran, saying that Iran would not halt its missile program but continue to boost military capabilities, despite USA demands.

Iran unveiled the Khorramshahr missile during a military parade earlier on Friday.

"Whether you like it or not, we are going to strengthen our military capabilities, which are necessary for deterrence", Rouhani said in his televised speech.

During his first address to the United Nations, Trump on Tuesday referred to Iran as a "corrupt dictatorship" that exports "violence, bloodshed and chaos".

Iran's defense minister said Saturday that Khorramshahr is an strategic missile and is a symbol of Iranian scientists' capability, official IRNA news agency reported.

Iran yesterday said it successfully tested a new medium-range missile in defiance of warnings from Washington that such activities were grounds for abandoning their landmark nuclear deal.

The nuclear deal concluded in 2015 with the great powers does not prohibit the activities in ballistic missile from Iran, but the resolution 2231 of the security Council, which endorsed this agreement, calls on Iran not to carry out activities to develop missiles created to carry nuclear warheads.

Previous Iranian missile launches had resulted in United States sanctions and accusations of violation of the spirit of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and major western powers.

He also said Iran would not seek permission from any country to "defend" it self.

Trump has vowed repeatedly to take a tougher line toward Iran than his predecessor, threatening at various times to renegotiate or even dismantle the nuclear deal, and shoot Iranian boats out of the water if they provoke US naval vessels in the Persian Gulf.

Washington has imposed unilateral sanctions against Iran, saying Tehran's ballistic missile tests violated a United Nations resolution that endorsed the nuclear deal and called on Tehran not to undertake activities related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

It's been known that Iran has had a missile with a range capable of reaching Israel, said Mark Fitzpatrick, executive director of the Institute for Internal Strategic Studies-Americas, a think tank.

The American president also threatened to bin the 2015 nuclear accord, saying Iran is developing missiles that could be used to deliver a nuclear warhead.

What's new, he said, is that Iran says its ballistic missiles can carry multiple warheads and maybe several cluster bombs.

Called the Khorramshahr missile, the weapon has a range of 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) and can carry multiple warheads, according to Press TV.

The U.S. announced additional economic sanctions against Iran over its ballistic missile program and destabilizing actions in the region in July.

Trump on Wednesday said he had made his decision, but was not yet ready to reveal it.
