Israel slams Iran missile test as 'provocation'

REUTERSWorld War 3 Iran’s president has vowed to boost the country’s missile capabilities

There has been some sympathy for the United States position from France, whose President Emmanuel Macron said the deal could be expanded to ban missile tests and cut a sunset clause in the nuclear agreement that would see Iran resume some uranium enrichment from 2025. It said Iran released footage of the test-launch.

The news report cites that detail as being "much to the chagrin of President Trump and company" - but 2017 isn't the first time the USA has aired its concerns over Iran's rocket and missile research.

The US President also threatened to scrap the 2015 nuclear accord, saying Iran is developing missiles that could be used to deliver a nuclear warhead.

Previous Iranian missile launches had resulted in U.S. sanctions and accusations of violation of the spirit of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and major western powers.

Rouhani addressed the parade in Tehran, saying that Iran would not halt its missile program but continue to boost military capabilities, despite US demands. "Not much of an agreement we have!"

Iran said on Saturday that it had successfully tested a new medium-range missile in defiance of warnings from Washington that such activities were grounds for abandoning their landmark nuclear deal. Iran says its missile program is within the bounds of the resolution because the rockets are not created to carry nuclear weapons.

Trump has repeatedly vowed to pull US backing from the deal; he has also called for including Iran's missile program.

He added, "Whether you like it or not we are going to help Syria, Yemen and Palestine, and we will strengthen our missiles".

"Rouhani is putting down a strong marker that Iran's missile programs are not on the negotiating table", he adds.

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

He is due to report to Congress on October 15 on whether Iran is still complying with the deal and whether it remains in U.S. interests to stick by it.

Iran maintains that its missile program has nothing to do with the nuclear deal. But Iran is still subject to an arms embargo and other restrictions, which are not technically part of the nuclear agreement.

Washington considers Tehran's ballistic missile tests to be a violation of the United Nations resolution that endorsed JCPOA.
