Countering the US, Iran test-fires new ballistic missile

This morning, a day after Iran unveiled its new ballistic missile in a military parade in Tehran, Iran released footage of a successful test launch that the military carried out soon after the parade took place.

Tehran has presented a new ballistic missile capable, the Tasnim News said citing the head of the Revolutionary Guards' aerospace division, Amirali Hajizadeh, on Friday. On the opposite, the world powers may compare Iran with North Korea that's in complete defiance of Trump's threats and warnings.

At the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump said Iran was building its missile capability and accused it exporting violence to Yemen, Syria and other parts of the Middle East.

"We will increase our military power as a deterrent".

The 2015 Iranian nuclear agreement does not address the Islamic Republic's ballistic missile program.

Saying that the geography of Iran is complex and wonderful, the minister noted, "the defense ministry develops its weaponry in accordance with what goes in the mind of enemies".

The launch of the Khoramshahr missile, which has a range of 2,000 km (1242 miles), was shown on state TV. "We will not seek permission from anyone to defend our country".

The new missile, which has a 2,000-kilometer range and can carry multiple warheads, "will be operational soon", Brig.

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.

This could pave the way for USA lawmakers to reimpose sanctions, leading to the potential collapse of the agreement. Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation are parties to the pact.

In February, Iran test-fired the same medium-range type of missile, prompting Trump to say that the United States was "putting Iran on notice".

US President Donald Trump addresses the 72nd Annual UN General Assembly in NY on September 19, 2017.

Rouhani on Wednesday described Trump's speech as "ignorant, absurd and hateful", adding that it would be a "great pity" if the nuclear deal was dismantled because of "rogue newcomers" to politics.
