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.
Iranannounced 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.
