Iran vows to boost missile defenses despite USA criticism

Iran vows to boost missile defenses despite USA criticism

He said in his Friday's speech to soldiers marked the anniversary of the outbreak of the Iran-Iraq war in 1980.

The ballistic missile, which is Iran's third type of missile with a range of 2,000 kilometers along with the Qadr-F and Sejjil ballistic missiles, is capable of carrying multiple warheads.

The new missile, called the Khoramshahr, was revealed during a parade to commemorate Iran's 1980s war with Iraq.

In Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said at the event that Iran will continue its missile capabilities and defense programs heedless of western pressures.

A ballistic missile that is capable of reaching 1200 miles, puts Israel well within striking distance from Iran.

Two sources, including a senior U.S. official, said on Wednesday that the White House does not want to kill the deal.

"Rouhani is playing hardball", said Sanam Vakil, an Iran scholar at Chatham House, a think tank in London, and at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University.

"If we consider 12 years of schooling as 12 steps for making progress it means that after taking the final step one should demonstrate a level of ability and knowledge to find a proper job and start working", the president highlighted.

As part of the nuclear agreement, President Trump has to re-certify the Iran deal to congress every 90 days. The Trump administration had also said, though grudgingly, that Iran was complying.

This week, Foreign Minister Wang Yi of China said that tensions on the Korean Peninsula highlighted the importance of the Iranian deal, and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov of Russian Federation said that the United States' imposition of unilateral sanctions on Iran was "illegitimate and undermines the collective nature of global efforts".

Later on Friday, Iranians staged anti-Trump protest to show their anger over the United States president's speech. The Iranians took heavy loss but fought back at any cost to recapture the city, which they did.

Trump used his U.N. speech to dismiss the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran, calling it an "embarrassment" and "one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into". Gen. Amir Hatami, said in remarks carried by state television.

Previous Iranian missile launches have triggered USA sanctions and accusations that they violate the spirit of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and major powers.
