Iran has successfully tested a new ballistic missile that can carry multiple warheads with explosives and can travel up to 2,000km, according to state media.

The Khorramshahr missile was unveiled Friday during a military parade in Tehran to commemorate the Iran-Iraq war which began on September 22, 1980.

Rouhani's comments, broadcast on the anniversary of Iraq's 1980 invasion of Iran, appeared to be aimed at President Trump, who sharply criticized Iran in a speech this week at the United Nations General Assembly.

Trump also called for a harder line against Iran from other members of the United Nations, saying "we can not let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building risky missiles".
