Iran Test-Launches New Ballistic Missile

Iran Test-Launches New Ballistic Missile

Iran said the Khorramshahr ballistic missile can travel up to a range of 2,000 km and carries several warheads.

The Khorramshahr missile was unveiled Friday during a military parade in Tehran to commemorate the Iran-Iraq war which began on September 22, 1980.

The prospect of Washington reneging on the deal has anxious some of the USA allies that helped negotiate it, especially as the world grapples with North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile development. "But we do know is that we'll need all the capabilities of the USA armed forces to be able to deal with Iran and North Korea at the same time".

United States has described missile tests by the IRGC as a violation of the spirit of the 2015 nuclear agreement Iran signed with world powers.

Earlier this week, in a speech at the United Nations, President Trump called Iran a "rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos".

He emphasized that, "like it or not", Tehran will defend "the oppressed people" of Yemen, Syria and Palestine.

U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said he is "extremely concerned" by reports that Iran tested a missile, saying the action was inconsistent with United Nations resolutions.

"We will promote our defensive and military power as much as we deem necessary", Rouhani said.

But Trump has been a staunch critic of the deal, claiming it makes the United States look weak on the worldwide stage.

The other signatories to the deal - Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia and the European Union - have all pushed for it to continue.

Washington has called on Tehran not to get involved in activities linked to nuclear missiles.

Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel.They are also working with North Korea.Not much of an agreement we have!

Rowhani later 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 worldwide sanctions on Iran.

Iranian television showed video on Saturday of the test launch from an unknown location, Iran's Press TV reported.

Tehran has always argued the tests are exclusively for protective reasons plus notes Security Councils-measure merely pertains to missiles created specifically to transport atomic war-heads.

But since rising to the presidency in the U.S. a year after the implementation of the Iran deal had begun, Donald Trump has been actively seeking a pretext to initiate an American withdrawal.

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