Iran tests multi-warhead ballistic missile

Nikki Haley denies designs on secretary of state job

President Hassan Rouhani had said that the country would "continue to develop new missiles and not seek anyone's permission to defend our land".

State broadcaster IRIB showed footage of the missile test.

In the aftermath of a major military parade organized in its capital city of Iran announced on Saturday, via its State-run television, having shot "with success" its new ballistic missile Khoramshahr.

The unveiling of the missile came during a military parade that commemorated the 1980s Iraq-Iran War.

The missile was tested in defiance of USA warnings as the country's President vowed to carry on with its missile program.

Tehran insists its missile program doesn't the resolution, saying the missiles are not created to carry nuclear weapons. "We will increase our military strength", he said.

The new ballistic missiles that is capable of carrying multiple nuclear warheads has a range of 1,200km, this is most likely going to infuriate Washington.

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

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.

Trump has until October 15 to certify to Congress that Iran has complied with the accord, a decision he must make every 90 days.

Tehran says the tests are exclusively for defensive purposes and notes that the nuclear accord does cover its missile program.

Trump also attacked the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the deal reached by several states just over two years ago that aims to curb Iran's nuclear program for the next ten years.

Trump has denounced Iran as a "rogue regime" and said its government was bent on "death and destruction".

Previous Iranian missile launches had resulted in USA sanctions and accusations of violation of the spirit of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and major western powers. At the time, President Trump tweeted that his administration would be less "kind" to Iran in the face of such tests. In a speech before congress in 2015, he described it as a "very bad deal" that "could well threaten the survival of my country".

Trump's secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, has said that the Iran nuclear agreement must be changed or the United States would not stick with it. Iran has said the accord is not up for renegotiation. And here's why: Iran vows to destroy my country every day, including by its chief of staff the other day.
