Speaking during Friday's parade, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tehran would press ahead with strengthening its missile capabilities and military defenses, Press TV reported.

Iran has "successfully" launched a ballistic missile with a range of 2,000 km, a state-media report said on Saturday.

He also criticized the 2015 pact that the United States and other world powers struck with Iran under which Tehran agreed to restrict its nuclear program in return for relief from economic sanctions.

Tehran has test fired a new ballistic missile in a show of defiance against President Trumps UN speech he gave last Tuesday.

A ballistic missile that is capable of reaching 1200 miles, puts Israel well within striking distance from Iran.

Rouhani added that "Iran's military power lies in its commitment to never invade another country or land".

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

Iran has unveiled a new ballistic missile during military parades held across the nation to mark the first day of the annual Sacred Defense Week.

"Imagine the danger of hundreds of nuclear weapons in the hands of a vast Iranian Islamist empire, with the missiles to deliver them anywhere on earth", Netanyahu said.

The Trump administration then slapped fresh sanctions against Iranian entities and officials in July in response to the missile program.

Several wings of Iran's armed forces and police units are showcasing their military might in the nationwide events attended by country's top leadership.

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

Rouhani warned Wednesday that his country will "respond decisively" to any violation of the agreement and called President Donald Trump's "ignorant, absurd and hateful rhetoric'' about Iran unfit for the United Nations".

Iran has insisted the missiles are not created to carry nuclear weapons and is not in violation of the resolution.

Rouhani has accused Trump of attempting to sabotage the landmark nuclear accord between Iran and six world powers. His remarks are likely to reinforce America's belief that Iran has violated the terms of its nuclear deal with the West.
