The missile was unveiled on Friday morning during a military parade in Tehran attended by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and senior military officials.

State broadcaster, IRIB news agency recorded the test firing of the Khoramshahr ballistic missile, plus showing the onboard camera to a military parade on Friday.

The missile strike comes at a tense between the nation's shiite and the United States, whose president, Donald Trump has violently denounced the agreement on the iranian nuclear issue concluded in Vienna in 2015.

"We can not let a murderous regime continue these destabilising activities while building unsafe missiles and we can not abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear programme", he said.

"The missile is able to carry warheads up to 1,800 kilometers", Hajizadeh added.

We will not seek permission from anyone to defend our country.

Iran announced Saturday that the country has conducted a successful test of a new ballistic missile design despite pressure from the Trump administration to stop, and vowed to continue its weapons development.

Iran has "successfully" launched and tested the latest ballistic rocket/missile that will carry numerous war-heads and will fly a whopping 2,000 km, in accordance with state media channels.

The unveiling of the new ballistic missile came as US President Donald Trump threatened to walk away from the nuclear deal under the pretext of Iran's missile tests.

"Whether you (the Western powers) want it or not, we will increase our defensive and military capabilities as a deterrent, as much as we deem appropriate".

Typical units of the Islamic Republic Army, the IRGC, Basij forces and the Islamic Republic of Iran's Law Enforcement Police were present in the parades.

Criticism by the USA administration of a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and major powers has focused heavily on Teheran's continuing missile programme.

Rouhani said the United States and Israel have isolated themselves by opposing the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and the other major powers.

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

At the United Nations on Tuesday, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu harshly condemned the Iran nuclear deal, warning that the accord will pave the way for Iran to obtain nuclear weapons if it is not scrapped or altered.
