In defiance to US, Iran unveils latest missile during parade

He added, "Whether you like it or not we are going to help Syria, Yemen and Palestine, and we will strengthen our missiles".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, while speaking during the parade, said Tehran would press ahead with strengthening its missile capabilities and military defenses.

Iran test-fired a new missile that it said could carry several warheads, state media reported late Friday, in a move that looked set to ratchet-up tensions with Washington.

State television carried footage of the launch of the Khoramshahr missile, which was first displayed at a high-profile military parade on Friday.

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.

"Extremely concerned by reports of Iran missile test, which is inconsistent with United Nations resolution 2231".

Although the US State Department admits that Iran has not violated the agreement, they have stated that the ballistic missile tests breach the spirit of the agreement, as it would be relatively easy to modify a ballistic missile to carry a nuclear warhead.

The same day as Rouhani's speech, Tehran unveiled their new ballistic missile at a military parade commemorating the 37-year anniversary of the start of the Iran-Iraq War that left hundreds of thousands dead.

On January 29, Iran test-launched a medium-range ballistic missile from a site near Semnan, east of Tehran, shortly after Trump took office.

"Iran's public display of the missile and Rouhani's comments were largely a response to the Trump administration's declared intention to pressure Tehran to accept limitations on its ballistic missile programs", Robert Einhorn, who played a crucial role in formulating USA policy toward Iran's nuclear program while advising the Obama administration on nonproliferation and arms control, tells Newsweek.

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

She added: "History and the experience of other rogue states such as North Korea has also shown the Iranian government that it is only from a position of strength that regimes such as Iran's can be protected".

The American president also threatened to bin the 2015 nuclear accord, saying Iran is developing missiles that could be used to deliver a nuclear warhead.

The president called on the world to join the U.S.

He is due to report to Congress on October 15 on whether or not he believes Iran is in compliance with the nuclear deal.

Rouhani has said 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 global sanctions on Iran.
