Iran tests new medium-range missile in defiance of United States warnings

Iran tests new medium-range missile in defiance of United States warnings”

The timing of the test was not disclosed by the broadcaster, although officials had said yesterday that it would be tested "soon".

In a speech broadcast on state television, he said: "We will strengthen our defense and military capabilities. whether you want it or not".

State TV said the Khorramshahr missile is the country's third to have a range of 1,200 miles (2,000km).

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.

President Donald Trump on Saturday pointed to a reported missile test by Iran to renew his criticism of the nuclear agreement it reached with the US and other nations.

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.

The news report cites that detail as being "much to the chagrin of President Trump and company" - but 2017 isn't the first time the USA has aired its concerns over Iran's rocket and missile research.

Mr Trump said this week he has reached a decision on the nuclear deal, but hasn't revealed what it is.

At the United Nations on Tuesday, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu harshly condemned the Iran nuclear deal, warning that the accord will pave the way for Iran to obtain nuclear weapons if it is not scrapped or altered.

On Thursday, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has final say on all major policies in Iran, said Trump's "cheap, ugly, foolish and unreal" remarks before the U.N. General Assembly were a sign of desperation.

The test comes at the end of a heated week of diplomacy at the UN General Assembly, where both the United States and Israel denounced Iran and its nuclear deal with six world powers.

In an interview with CNN, he called for a new agreement to monitor Iran's missile development.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed the crowd promising to increase the country's military power and missile capability -despite U.S. demands.

The Iranian armed forces commemorated the 1980-1988 war with Iraq, on Friday, by holding a parade in which Iran's most advanced military power and abilities are showcased.
