The test-firing of the Khorramshahr missile, which Iran said could carry several warheads, is likely to raise concerns in Washington.

U.S. President Donald Trump is still determining whether its interests were served by the deal, which comprised of restrictions on Tehran's nuclear program in return for the loosening of economic sanctions.

This isn't a new development in and of itself, but the intensity of the rhetoric has noticeably increased in the past week as Trump seems to have hyped up his United Nations appearance, during which time he used the global podium to condemn the Iranians.

It was mainly a procedural move, but it was significant since reimposing nuclear-related sanctions could lead Iran to end its compliance with the deal and revert back to rapid uranium enrichment - something it's threatened to do if the United States reneges.

"It has the potential to carry nuclear warheads, but I am skeptical as to whether it can carry multiple ones because nuclear warheads are so large", said Fitzpatrick, who also heads the think tank's Non-Proliferation and Nuclear Policy Programme.

U.S. President Donald Trump has called the 2015 deal "an embarrassment" but it is supported by the other major powers that negotiated it.
