France Says 'Concerned' by Iran's Ballistic Missile Test

France Says 'Concerned' by Iran's Ballistic Missile Test

Iran's state TV aired footage late Friday it said showed a Khoramshahr medium-range ballistic missile being test fired.

"Iran's public display of the missile and Rouhani's comments were largely a response to the Trump administration's declared intention to pressure Tehran to accept limitations on its ballistic missile programs", Robert Einhorn, who played a crucial role in formulating USA policy toward Iran's nuclear program while advising the Obama administration on nonproliferation and arms control, tells Newsweek.

Iran tested a new ballistic missile that is reportedly capable of carrying multiple warheads, the nation's state-run broadcaster announced Saturday.

The missile is believed to have a range of about 1,250 miles, making it capable of reaching a large portion of the Middle East.

Good News For Nigeria As Oil Prices Hit $57
Crude prices were on course for a rise of almost 16 per cent this quarter which would make this year's performance the strongest for the third quarter since 2004.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani vowed to defy Western pressure and boost the Islamic Republic's ballistic missile capabilities on Friday, making the comments the same day the country demonstrated their newest missile during a military parade.

Criticism by the Donald Trump administration of a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and major powers, including the United States, has focused heavily on Tehran's continuing missile programme.

According to commentators, if Trump were to decide it was not, it could open the way for USA lawmakers to reimpose sanctions, leading to the potential collapse of the agreement. "They are also working with North Korea", Trump said on Twitter.

He emphasized that, "like it or not", Tehran will defend "the oppressed people" of Yemen, Syria and Palestine.

Free electricity connections to four cr rural households: PM
The dig was aimed at controversies surrounding Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. "There are four crore families which do not have electricity , not to talk of bulb".

During his first address to the United Nations, Trump on Tuesday referred to Iran as a "corrupt dictatorship" that exports "violence, bloodshed and chaos".

"Imagine what would happen if Iran were to acquire nuclear weapons", he said.

The deal, Rouhani said, is supported by his government and the five other parties — Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany — that signed the agreement.

That range is enough to strike major cities in Iran's regional rivals, such as Jerusalem and Tel Aviv in Israel and Medina and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, as well as the numerous USA military bases in Afghanistan, Bahrain, Israel, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.
