    BBC disagrees.

    "Iran says it has successfully tested a new-medium range missile, in defiance of US President Donald Trump.

    The launch of the Khoramshahr missile, which has a range of 2,000 km (1,242 miles), was shown on state TV. It is unclear when the test took place.

    On Friday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Iran would increase its military power "as a deterrent".

    US President Donald Trump criticised the launch, saying the missile was capable of hitting its ally Israel.

    The Khoramshahr missile was first displayed at a military parade on Friday in Tehran. It is capable of carrying multiple warheads, Iranian media report."

    The report said the missile was launched late Friday, without providing further details.
    Iran has “successfully” launched a ballistic missile with a range of 2,000 km, a state-media report said on Saturday.

    State-run Press TV broadcast a footage released by the government of “the successful test-launch” of its new ballistic missile, Khorramshahr, a few hours after it was unveiled during a military parade here on Friday with President Hassan Rouhani and senior military officials in attendance, reports Xinhua news agency.

    The report said the missile was launched late Friday, without providing further details.

    The ballistic missile is capable of carrying multiple warheads, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, a senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Division, told the media on Friday.

    “The missile has become smaller in size (compared to other Iranian ballistic missiles) and more tactical, and it will be operational in the near future,” Hajizadeh said without further elaboration.

    France Seeks UN Report on Iran's Ballistic Missile Launch

    F rance said on Saturday it was extremely concerned by Iran’s ballistic missile test and called on UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to carry out a full report on the launch.

    “France asks that Iran cease all [alleged] destabilizing activity in the region,” French Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Agnes Romatet-Espagne said in a statement, Reuters reported.

    “[France] will consider with its partners, notably European, the means to obtain from Iran the cessation of its destabilizing ballistic activities.”
