Iran Shows Off New Ballistic Missile At Military Parade

Iran Shows Off New Ballistic Missile At Military Parade”

The move is a direct challenge to President Donald Trump, who signed a bill imposing mandatory penalties on those involved in Iran's ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them.

In addition to carrying out missile tests, Iran has also launched a space satellite and fired missiles at Islamic State group targets in eastern Syria in recent months.

Video of the test firing of a Khoramshahr medium-range ballistic missile aired Friday on Iran's state TV. Now that the United States has fully displayed its nature, the government should use all its options to defend the Iranian nation's interests.

As its commander unleashed a scathing attack on President Donald Trump, Iran's Revolutionary Guards unveiled their newest long-range missile, which is capable of striking nearly anywhere in the Middle East-including Israel.

"We can not let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building risky missiles", he added. They are also working with North Korea.

"Not much of an agreement we have!" the President added in his tweet, apparently alluding to the agreement signed in 2015 between Tehran and six worldwide powers, including the United States, on Iran's nuclear programme.

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". "Not much of an agreement we have". The Trump administration has repeatedly said that Iran is violating the "spirit" of the JCPOA, and has suggested that it will not certify Tehran's compliance at the next review deadline October 15.

The nuclear agreement reached during the Obama administration doesn't strictly prohibit Iran from developing missiles.

"As long as some speak in the language of threats, the strengthening of the country's defence capabilities will continue and Iran will not seek permission from any country for producing various kinds of missile", Defence Minister Amir Hatami said in a statement.

"We have to work in order to have a monitoring process on the ballistic activity of Iran." he told CNN.

If he decides that it is not, that could open the way for U.S. lawmakers to reimpose sanctions, leading to the potential collapse of the agreement.

He is due to report to Congress on October 15 on whether or not he believes Iran is in compliance with the nuclear deal.

Iran expert Sanam Vakil, an associate fellow with the UK's Chatham House, said that Rouhani was playing to both the global and domestic audience.

Rouhani afterward told a news conference that the Trump administration is seeking "an excuse" to pull out of the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement that capped Iran's nuclear activities in return for the lifting of global sanctions on Iran.

"On the other (hand), domestic politics very much drives Iran's relationship with the U.S., and Rouhani has a big hard-line contingency among the country's elite who fear the USA wants a regime change that he has to consider".
