Defiant Iran test fires ballistic missile 'Khorramshahr'

Defiant Iran test fires ballistic missile 'Khorramshahr'

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

His comments came as Iran displayed a new missile at a military parade marking the anniversary of the outbreak of its devastating 1980-1988 war with Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

Despite global condemnation, Iran's defense minister stated Tehran would not abandon its missile program.

Speaking to CNN news host Fareed Zakaria, Zarif said that Iran has "said time and again and we have proven that our missiles are for defense".

The new missile test by Iran challenges worldwide agreement with Tehran over nuclear issue, said on Saturday 23rd of September american president Donald Trump.

Soltvedt added that missile tests would strain relations with Iran's Middle East neighbors.

"Whether you like it or not, we are going to defend the oppressed peoples of Yemen, Palestine and Syria", he said.

Lashkar, Al-Qaeda has Rohingya links, say government sources

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. If Trump decides to decertify, Congress will have 60 days to vote on re-imposing the sanctions, lifted under the pact in exchange for Tehran capping its nuclear program.

The footage includes the launch from multiple angles as well as footage from cameras mounted on the missile itself.

Soltvedt said the missile tests allow Trump to expand sanctions against the country without violating the Iran nuclear deal.

"Iran's military power lies in its commitment to never invade another country or land". Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation are parties to the pact. Following the test, the USA called for an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting, which was held on January 31, to discuss the matter.

Sitting in the audience as Trump uttered this insult were leaders of the other nations who, along with the United States, negotiated the Iran deal.

Cooler heads should prevail like that of French President Emmanuel Macron who recently told the CNN that "although the 2015 Iran deal was not ideal, the worldwide community should stick with it or risk facing another situation like North Korea". "As North Korea continues to improve its ability to do longer-range missiles and to put nuclear weapons on those missiles, it is very unlikely if they get that capability that they wouldn't share it with lots of folks".

"For Rouhani, reasserting Iran's ballistic missile ambitions provides cover against hard-line critics that see the nuclear agreement as a capitulation to world powers".
