Iran displays S-300 air defense missile system to public

Iran displays S-300 air defense missile system to public

Press TV reported the missile is "capable of carrying multiple warheads" but noted Iran's insistence that its missiles were designed for "defense purposes" and not nuclear capabilities. "They are also working with North Korea (sic)", he tweeted.

If he decides that it is not, it could open the way for renewed USA sanctions and perhaps the collapse of the agreement.

The Khorramshahr missile was paraded, despite warnings from the United States against Iran's weapons program, in the presence of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and senior military leaders.

In defiance of USA warnings, Iran on Saturday tested a missile with a range of 2,000 km and that can carry multiple warheads.

The footage shown on Iranian television appears most likely to be a re-run of a previous test launch, the official said.

Iran has been celebrating the 29th anniversary of the end of the Iran Iraq war, with military parades and public gatherings.

Following Iran's announcement of the missile test, Trump on Saturday tweeted disparagingly of the deal.

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 Roethlisberger said the players were separated when they came out of the locker room by a crowd of people leaving the field. A statement on behalf of Seahawks players said: "As a team, we have decided we will not participate in the national anthem".

Earlier this week, Trump had urged the worldwide community not to let the Iranian regime to continue destabilizing activities as it builds "dangerous missiles".

"We will certainly reinforce our own protection in addition to army capacities ... regardless of whether you desire it or not", Rouhani mentioned, a direct reaction to Trump's dialog in the United nations General Assemblage recently.

Trump has threatened to bin the nuclear agreement, saying Iran is developing missiles that may be used to deliver a nuclear warhead when the deal's restrictions are lifted in 2025, reports AFP.

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

Trump's administration has twice certified that Iran is complying with its obligations under the accord.

Moreover, although the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency watchdog has been allowed to carry out some inspections, Iran has barred the agency from inspections at any of its military research facilities, all of which are sites where nuclear technology research and other work has been carried out in the past.

Trump has until October 15 to decide whether he wants to recertify Iran's compliance with the deal.
