Iran claims successful test of missile capable of reaching Israel

Donald Trump UN speech iran

The particular move was obviously a one on one challenge to the US Leader Donald Trump, whom around August finalized a bill imposing compulsory fees and penalties upon individuals involved with Iran's ballistic missile program in addition to anybody who does any business with people active in the program.

We can not say conclusively that Iran and North Korea are actively working together on ballistic missile developments, but the timelines and past precedents heavily point to continued cooperation on advanced weapons.

During Friday's military parade, President Hassan Rouhani said his country would strengthen its missile capabilities without seeking permission from any other country.

A senior advisor to former United States president, Barack Obama, has questioned the narrative used by the administration of President Donald Trump that Iran is "violating the spirit" of the 2015 nuclear deal even as it is in technical compliance with it. This launch occurred the same a month as North Korea's first demonstration of the Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile.

The next major deadline comes in October when Trump will decide whether to certify that Iran is complying with the agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. "Not much of an agreement we have!" he wrote.

It also carried in-flight video from the nose cone of the missile, which has a range of 2,000-km and can carry multiple warheads.

In defiance of U.S. warnings, Iran on Saturday tested a missile with a range of 2,000 km and that can carry multiple warheads.

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

French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday said that although the 2015 Iran deal was not flawless, the global community should stick with it or risk facing another situation like North Korea.

Mr Trump said this week he has reached a decision on the nuclear deal, but hasn't revealed what it is.

But the United States has argued Iran's missile tests breach a United Nations resolution, which endorsed the nuclear deal. "The ballistic missile which Iran fired is a provocation of the United States and its allies, including Israel", the Israeli defense minister said.
