Iran's Reaction to Trump Speech: A New Ballistic Missile

On Friday, the Iranian armed forces commemorated the 1980-1988 war with Iraq by holding a parade in which Iran's most advanced military power and abilities are showcased.

"As long as some (of the powers) talk in a threatening language, Iran's strengthening of its defense power will continue", Hatami said.

It also imposed sanctions on Iran after a ballistic missile test in January.

Trump used his U.N. speech to dismiss the pact with Tehran, which lifted sanctions in exchange for Iran curbing its nuclear program, as an "embarrassment" and "one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into". "We will not seek permission from anyone to defend our country", Rouhani said in a speech broadcast on state television.

Rouhani said the United States and Israel have isolated themselves by opposing the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and the other major powers. "We will strengthen our missile capabilities. Iran is conducting a campaign of conquest across the Middle East and Iran is developing ballistic missiles to threaten the entire world".

Among the weapons unveiled was a new ballistic missile with a range of 2,000 km, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Auburn falls to the defending champs 14
As a team, TCU muscled to 195 yards and four touchdowns on 42 carries, while Hill hit 21-of-31 passes for 166 yards. Auburn gave the defending champions a hard time in last season's 19-13 loss at Jordan-Hare Stadium .

The Trump administration has called the omission of ballistic missiles a central flaw of the agreement, which Trump may try to revisit - or scrap altogether, as he has threatened in the past.

UN inspectors say Iran has fulfilled its commitments to give up its nuclear activities under the agreement, which was reached with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany.

Rouhani afterward told a news conference that the Trump administration is seeking "an excuse" to pull out of the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement that capped Iran's nuclear activities in return for the lifting of global sanctions on Iran.

In apparent defiance to U.S. President Donald Trump's demands, Iranian President Hassan Rohani insisted his country will ask no one's permission to build up its missile stock.

Rouhani on Wednesday called Trump's speech to the United Nations.

The possibility that Washington might renege on the deal has anxious some countries, especially as the world grapples with North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile development.
