Iran Challenges Trump's Administration with New Ballistic Test

"Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel.They are also working with North Korea".

Iran has all options on the table, including pulling out of the 2015 nuclear agreement and bolstering its nuclear program at a "greater speed", should President Trump decertify the pact, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told CNN.

A few hours after the announcement by Tehran of launching a new ballistic missile, the us president, has put in doubt the very existence of the agreement of 2015.

Trump said on Wednesday he had made his decision but was not yet ready to reveal it.

The Khoranshahr missile launched by Iran has a range of 1,242 miles.

Footage of the missile test, including from a camera mounted on the missile, was shown on Iranian state television, though it did not say when the test took place. It also carried in-flight video from the nose cone of the missile, which has a range of 2,000 kilometers and can carry multiple warheads.

The indigenously-built Khorramshahr was first announced by the defence ministry in September 2016, and U.S. officials said it was this ballistic missile was tested in January, sparking global condemnation.

The unveiling of the missile came during a military parade that commemorated the 1980s Iraq-Iran War, according to RFE/RL.

What impact will the new travel ban have on Minnesota?
The administration's new directives did not address the ban on refugees from all countries, which is still in effect. The new policy could complicate the Supreme Court's review of the order, which is scheduled for argument next month.

During his speech at the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for the altering or scrapping of the deal. But Iran is still subject to an arms embargo and other restrictions, which are not technically part of the nuclear agreement.

This agreement is meant to ensure the strictly civilian and peaceful iranian nuclear program, in exchange for the gradual lifting of the sanctions against Tehran.

Instead, Iran has emphasised its home-grown missile programme, and denied that this breaches any global laws.

Washington is due to announce on October 15 whether it considers Iran is still complying with the agreement.

"France asks that Iran cease all [alleged] destabilizing activity in the region", French Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Agnes Romatet-Espagne said in a statement, Reuters reported.

Iran's recent ballistic missile launch was fake and never took place, US officials told Fox News Monday.

Tehran insists its missile program doesn't violate the resolution, saying the missiles are not created to carry nuclear weapons.
