Iran unveiled a new ballistic missile Friday, showing off the weapon during a military parade in Tehran.

According to Tasnim news agency, the missile is able to carry a multiple independently tar reentry vehicle (MIRV) weighing 1,800 kilograms. "Iran is conducting a campaign of conquest across the Middle East and Iran is developing ballistic missiles to threaten the entire world".

"The ballistic missile will be operational in the near future". "As long as Iranians were barred from entering the USA, US citizens would be barred from entering Iran; as soon as the US lifts the ban, as it was forced to do at the end of February, Iran would respond in kind".

This was due to what was termed as a violation of the spirit of the 2015 agreement between Iran and six world powers to limit its nuclear programme in exchange for sanctions relief.

Rouhani has stated that this Trump government is looking to get "an excuse" to get out from the landmark 2015- nuclear arrangement which topped Iran's atomic activities in substitution for the lifting of worldwide actions against Iran.
