Iran Shows Off Khorramshahr Ballistic Missile After Trump Speech

Hassan Rouhani

Iran also displayed other home-made advanced missiles, including ballistic missiles, which are reported to have ranges of 1,300 km to 2,000 km. That is what its aspiring to.

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

"Iran has just tested a ballistic missile capable of reaching Israel".

Iran's Revolutionary Guard on Friday showed off its latest ballistic missile capable of reaching much of the Middle East, including Israel, while the country's president vowed that Teheran would press ahead with its missile programme in defiance of United States demands to the contrary.

"We will strengthen not only our missiles but also our air, land and sea forces".

On 15th October, 2017, Mr. Trump will be certifying to the Congress that whether Iran is truly compliant with nuclear deal of 2015 it made with world powers.

Iran unveiled a new medium-range ballistic missile on Friday as President Hassan Rouhani vowed that his country would defend itself at any cost from aggression by the United States and Israel, The Los Angeles Times writes.

Iran said in its announcement on Saturday that the Khorramshahr missile could carry several warheads. However, Tehran counters the allegation of violating the sanctions by insisting on the fact that missiles are not carrying any nuclear warheads. "They are also working with North Korea", Trump said on Twitter. "(France) will consider with its partners, notably European, the means to obtain from Iran the cessation of its destabilizing ballistic activities".

On Thursday, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has final say on all major policies in Iran, said Trump's "cheap, ugly, foolish and unreal" remarks before the General Assembly were a sign of desperation.

A ballistic missile, called Khorramshahr, was put on display during the parade. The test-fire of missile by Iran is a borderline case for UN Security Council. He called the nuclear pact of 2015 as an "embarrassment" to USA government.

Haley said in a speech on September 20, after President Trump told reporters that he had made a decision on the nuclear deal, that "Iran has been caught in multiple violations over the past year and a half".
