Donald Trump says Iran's new ballistic missile is capable of reaching Israel

It was not clear, however, when and where the test launch of the Khorramshahr missile was conducted. Tasnim News Agancy called the Khorramshahr "Israel's nightmare".

With such a range, the missile would be easily capable of reaching Israel and Saudi Arabia.

"The ballistic missile which Iran fired is a provocation of the United States and its allies, including Israel", Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a statement, adding it was proof of Tehran's ambition to become a world power, Xinhua reported.

Iran says it's successfully tested a new ballistic missile with a range of 2,000 KM. Many experts think North Korea wouldn't do something so risky, but it's hard to rule out given North Korea's steadily expanding nuclear and missile tests.

Rouhani was quoted by Press TV as saying during the military parade on Friday: "We will promote our defensive and military power as much as we deem necessary".

But Trump has said before that Iran is not complying with the "spirit" of the agreement, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said Iran is "clearly in default of the expectations" of the deal.

If he says the country has violated the agreement, Congress will have 60 days to decide if the USA should re-impose the economic sanctions the deal lifted. If he does not, Congress has 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions waived under the deal. ", has tweeted us president".

The nuclear agreement reached during the Obama administration doesn't strictly prohibit Iran from developing missiles. "That is a concern for the whole region".

Iran's Revolutionary Guard on Friday displayed its latest ballistic missile capable of reaching Israel and much of the Middle East.

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

On Saturday (23 September), the USA president tweeted: "Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel.They are also working with North Korea.Not much of an agreement we have!"

Iran expert Sanam Vakil, an associate fellow with the UK's Chatham House, said that Rouhani was playing to both the global and domestic audience.

He told the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday that the accord was "nothing short of an embarrassment" and the "worst one-sided deal perhaps in American history".
