Rouhani lashes back at Trump, as Iran unveils new missile

The broadcaster did not specify when and where the test was carried out.

Tehran stated Saturday that it has successfully tested the new ballistic missile Khorramshahr, which was unveiled yesterday during a military parade.

The unveiling of the missile came during a military parade that commemorated the 1980s Iraq-Iran War.

On Friday night Iran released footage of the successful test-launch of its new ballistic missile, called Khorramshahr, with a range of 2,000 kilometers.

Although UN provisions seek to limit ballistic missile technology, the nuclear agreement negotiated in 2015 by Iran and six world powers, including the United States, does not prohibit Iran from developing such weapons.

Tehran says that the missiles are entirely legitimate under the terms of the deal, as they are not created to carry a nuclear warhead.

The bill, though meant to target Iran, calls for penalties against foreign agents or entities that do business with the country in connection to its missile program. "We will defend the downtrodden people of Yemen, Syria, and Palestine whether you like it or not", he added.

The officials have not provided any details on the capabilities of the advanced missile, Tasnim news agency reported.

TEHRAN-Iran said it had tested a new medium-range ballistic missile, the day after unveiling it in defiance of USA criticism over its disputed nuclear program.

Trump has criticized the nuclear deal and said it must be strengthened, or the US could walk away.

Donald Trump's criticism of Iran in his speech at the United Nations this week has only served to strengthen the country's determination to increase its missile capability, president Hassan Rouhani has said.

He is due to report to Congress on October 15 on whether Iran is still complying with the deal and whether it remains in United States interests to stick by it. Iran says it has no such plans.

The U.S. announced additional economic sanctions against Iran over its ballistic missile program and destabilizing actions in the region in July.

Rouhani, a moderate, has staked his reputation on sealing the nuclear deal and relieving the Iranian economy of debilitating global sanctions.

Echoing him, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said since the deal Iran has been "like a hungry tiger unleashed, not joining the community of nations but devouring nations one after the other".
