Iran Is 'Working with North Korea' on Missiles

Iran Is 'Working with North Korea' on Missiles”

Iran says all of its missiles are created to carry conventional warheads only and has limited their range to a maximum of 2,000 kilometres, although commanders say they have the technology to go further.

The ballistic missile, which is Iran's third type of missile with a range of 2,000 kilometers along with the Qadr-F and Sejjil ballistic missiles, is capable of carrying multiple warheads.

Tehran has argued that the tests are exclusively for defensive purposes and notes the Security Council measure only applies to missiles specifically created to carry nuclear warheads. "Not much of an agreement we have!" he added.

Under the agreement, restrictions on Iran will begin to be lifted after ten years, allowing the regime at that point to install thousands of advanced uranium centrifuges, giving it the ability to develop a nuclear weapon within six months.

Iran said in its announcement on Saturday that the Khorramshahr missile could carry several warheads.

President Trump told the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday that Iran was building its missile capacity and accused it of exporting violence to Yemen, Syria and other parts of the Middle East.

US President Donald Trump said on Twitter the missile test illustrates the weakness of the Iran nuclear deal reached by his predecessor Barack Obama.

State-run Press TV broadcast a footage of the launch of the Khoramshahr missile, which was first displayed at a high-profile military parade on Friday with President Hassan Rouhani and senior military officials in attendance.

The test shows that Iran has a multiple warhead missile well within range of Jerusalem. Gen. Amir Hatami, said in remarks carried by state television.

Britain voiced concerns about the latest test.

"The regime has engaged in such launches repeatedly, including in July of this year when it launched a rocket into space that intelligence experts say can be used to develop intercontinental ballistic missile technology", Haley said in a speech at the American Enterprise Institute on September 5. "We seek no one's permission to defend our land".

"France will consider ways, with its European and other partners, to get Iran to stop its destabilising ballistic activities".

"It is also a means to test our reactions as well as new proof of Iran's ambition to become a world power in order to threaten the countries of the Middle East and democratic states around the world".

Iran denies its missile development breaches the United Nations resolution and says its missiles are not created to carry nuclear weapons.
