Iran successfully tests new ballistic missile: state media

The missile was unveiled on Friday morning during a military parade in Tehran attended by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and senior military officials.

Video footage aired by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) on Friday evening showed the missile launched from an unknown location.

Iran unveiled what it said was a new ballistic missile with a range of 2,000km, capable of carrying several warheads, during commemorations for the Iran-Iraq war and days after the U.S. president called Tehran a "corrupt dictatorship".

Just two days earlier President Donald Trump announced that he had made a decision on the nuclear deal that Iran reached with the United States and other world powers in 2015.

The United States has imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran, saying its missile tests violate a U.N. resolution, which calls on Tehran not to undertake activities related to missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

"The missile is able to carry warheads up to 1,800 kilometers", Hajizadeh added.

"It is also a means to test our reactions as well as new proof of Iran's ambition to become a world power in order to threaten the countries of the Middle East and democratic states around the world".

Friday's reported missile test is the latest in a series of launches.

According to commentators, the action comes as a direct challenge to president Donald Trump, who in August signed a bill imposing mandatory penalties on those involved in Iran's ballistic missile programme and anyone who did business with the them.

Iran has denied that its missiles would be used to carry a nuclear warhead.

Thus far, the United Nations nuclear watchdog and the US State Department have reported that Tehran has complied with the terms of the nuclear deal.

"Despite all the supports offered by world powers to the aggressors, the Iranian nation managed to score glorious victories with their selflessness and devotion", said the Iranian top executive.
