Iran unveils latest ballistic missile

Iran unveils latest ballistic missile

At the UN General Assembly on September 19, Trump accused Iran of building "dangerous" missiles and exporting violence to Yemen, Syria, and other countries in the region.

Iranian Leader Hassan Rouhani attended to Friday's celebration within Tehran, stating that Iran wouldn't stop it's rocket program as well as would certainly continue to keep boosting military services abilities, in spite of United states cautions and demands.

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.

Images from State television showed the launch of the missile.

The new missile design has a range of 1,200 miles, according to a Reuters report.

The new missile is capable of carrying several warheads and was on display yesterday in a military parade.

Iran's Defence Minister, Gen Amir Hatami, outlined the missile's "unique specifications".

Iran also displayed other missiles, tanks and a submarine in a military parade.

Iranian officials have argued that the measure only applies to missiles specifically created to carry nuclear warheads.

Trump used his U.N. speech to dismiss the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran, calling it an "embarrassment" and "one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into".

Defying UN security council resolutions and USA warnings, Iran test fired a new ICBM that they say is capable of carrying multiple warheads. State broadcaster IRIB quoted an Iranian commander who stated that the country would not seek "permission" for future weapons tests.

Rouhani, a moderate, has staked his reputation on sealing the nuclear deal and relieving the Iranian economy of debilitating worldwide sanctions. Trump said on Wednesday he had made his decision, but was not yet ready to reveal it.

Iran maintains that testing non-nuclear ballistic missiles is not a violation of the JCPOA.

Trump put Iran "on notice" in February for test-firing a ballistic missile and imposed new economic sanctions in July over its missile program and "malign activities" in the Middle East.
