Iran unveils new ballistic missile

Iran unveils new ballistic missile”

"When it comes to defending our country, we will ask nobody for their permission", President Hassan Rouhani said.

Iran unveiled a new long-range ballistic missile during military parade in the capital Tehran on Friday as the country marked the beginning of a week-long Defense Week.

The state-run IRNA news agency quoted chief of the Guard's airspace division, Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, as saying that the new missile, named Khoramshahr, "can carry several warheads for various uses".

To put the missile's range in perspective, consider that the minimum range of an intercontinental ballistic missile is generally considered to be 5,500 kilometers (3,400 miles), while a medium-range missile can fly between 1,000 and 3,000 kilometers. "We will strengthen not only our missiles but also our air, land and sea forces".

The U.S. President Donald Trump has criticized the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and major powers, and commented that Iran's continuing missile program has violated the spirit of the deal.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said that the agreement must be changed or the United States could not stick with it. Iran has said its nuclear accord cannot be renegotiated.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said tensions on the Korean peninsula underlined the importance of the Iranian deal, and that China would continue to support it.

Trump has repeatedly vowed to pull US backing from the deal; he has also called for including Iran's missile program.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday that the USA imposition of unilateral sanctions on Iran was "illegitimate and undermines the collective nature of worldwide efforts".
