Images of the "successful" launch were carried by broadcaster IRIB, including video from an on-board camera.

Iran's Revolutionary Guard on Friday showed off its latest ballistic missile capable of reaching much of the Middle East, including Israel, while the country's president vowed that Teheran would press ahead with its missile programme in defiance of United States demands to the contrary.

At the United Nations on Tuesday, Mr. Trump criticised Iran's missile programme and the 2015 nuclear deal with the country.

The nuclear deal concluded in 2015 with the great powers does not prohibit the activities in ballistic missile from Iran, but the resolution 2231 of the security Council, which endorsed this agreement, calls on Iran not to carry out activities to develop missiles created to carry nuclear warheads.

Iranian officials have argued that the measure only applies to missiles specifically created to carry nuclear warheads.

The bill, though meant to target Iran, calls for penalties against foreign agents or entities that do business with the country in connection to its missile program.

"We will increase our military power as a deterrent", he said.

Iran's defense minister said Saturday that Khorramshahr is an strategic missile and is a symbol of Iranian scientists' capability, official IRNA news agency reported.

TEHRAN-Iran said it had tested a new medium-range ballistic missile, the day after unveiling it in defiance of USA criticism over its disputed nuclear program.

President Trump has promised over and over again to adopt a much harder line in the direction of Iran, intimidating at numerous time to negotiate or maybe take apart this 2015 nuclear option, as well as blast Iranian boats out from the waters should they pressure United states naval ships.

President Hassan Rouhani said Iran would strengthen its missile capabilities without asking for any country's permission.

President Donald Trump has threatened to junk the agreement over the issue, saying that Iran's missile programme could give it the technical knowhow for a delivery system for a nuclear warhead with the expiration of a sunset clause in the deal in 2025.

Rouhani has accused Trump of attempting to sabotage the landmark nuclear accord between Iran and six world powers.

Max Abrahms, assistant Professor of Political Science at Northeastern University, said that Iran's announcement of its new missile will likely lead to more escalation.

Friday's parade also showcased various Iranian army units and Revolutionary Guard forces, as well as the police.

Iran has insisted the missiles are not created to carry nuclear weapons and is not in violation of the resolution.
