Trump criticises Iran over its recent ballistic missile test

"Iran has released footage of the successful test-launch of its new ballistic missile, Khorramshahr, a few hours after it was unveiled during a military parade in the capital city of Tehran", Press TV said.

"Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel".

U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to renegotiate or to dump the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement between world powers and the Islamic Republic, which trades sanctions relief for a rollback of Iran's nuclear program.

We can not say conclusively that Iran and North Korea are actively working together on ballistic missile developments, but the timelines and past precedents heavily point to continued cooperation on advanced weapons. "Not much of an agreement we have!" he wrote.

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

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressing the United Nations last week where he urged the world body to "fix or nix" the Iranian nuclear agreement.

"Whether you like it or not, we are going to strengthen our military capabilities which are necessary for deterrence", Rouhani said in a speech broadcast live on state television as Iran displayed the new missile at a military parade marking the anniversary of the outbreak of its devastating 1980-1988 war with Saddam Hussein's Iraq. "We seek no one's permission to defend our land".

Mr Trump said this week he has reached a decision on the nuclear deal, but hasn't revealed what it is.

He is due to report to Congress on October 15 on whether or not he believes Iran is in compliance with the nuclear deal. He added that Iran remains fully committed to the pact, Press TV reported.

In an interview with CNN, he called for a new agreement to monitor Iran's missile development.

He said the Khorramshahr missile was 13 metres (43 feet) long and could carry an 1,800 kilogram (almost 4,000-pound) payload.
