Iranian President Hassan Rohani responded by saying it would "a great pity" if the deal was "destroyed by rogue newcomers to the world of politics".

It also carried in-flight video from the nose cone.

Khorramshahr ballistic missile has a range of 2,000 kilometers with ability to carry 1,800 kilograms multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRV), he added.

IRAN stands accused by Donald Trump of colluding with North Korea after testing a new medium-range ballistic missile, with the President again calling into question a landmark nuclear deal with the USA and other world powers.

Iran has successfully tested a new ballistic missile capable of easily striking Israel, the country boasted Saturday.


Trump is expected to report to Congress on October 15 on whether Iran is still complying with the deal and whether it remains in United States interests to stick by it.

The test-firing of the Khorramshahr missile, which Iran said could carry several warheads, is likely to raise concerns in Washington.

Iran frequently calls for the death of both America and Israel. According to him, the missile will be delivered to the air defense system of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. He has called it "the worst deal ever negotiated".

Yesterday the Islamic republic unveiled its the missile during a massive military parade just days after the country's government was condemned by Donald Trump.

"Iran's military power lies in its commitment to never invade another country or land". The report said the missile was launched late on Friday, without providing further details.


On Wednesday, Trump told reporters that he had made a decision about whether or not to pull out of the nuclear deal, but declined to say what it was.

Iran will defend the oppressed people of Yemen, Syria, and Palestine despite the will of some arrogant powers, he maintained.

Speaking a day later, Rouhani demanded an apology from Trump for his "extremely offensive" rhetoric and "unfounded" allegations about Iran. Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation are parties to the pact.

Iran says all of its missiles are created to carry conventional warheads only and has limited their range to a maximum of 2,000km, although commanders say they have the technology to go further.
