According to state media Iran "successfully" tested a new ballistic missile Test that can carry travel up to 2,000 km. This move was a direct challenge to US President, who signed a bill imposing mandatory penalties on Iran's ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with those involved in the program.Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed in Tehran and says that we would not halt its missile program and would continue to boost military capabilities, despite US warnings and demands. Iranian President Rouhani said 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 international sanctions on Iran.




Iran from developing missiles does not strictly prohibit, The deal between Iran and world powers but after the agreement came into effect last year, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution calling on Iran not to take any actions related to ballistic missiles "designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons" for eight years. Tehran has argued that the tests are solely for defensive purposes and notes the Security Council measure only applies to missiles specifically designed to carry nuclear warheads.
