WASHINGTON D.C. — Iran's Revolutionary Guard paraded a newly built ballistic missile that it said could strike Israel through the streets of Tehran Friday while Iranian President Hassan Rouhani proclaimed to the procession that Iran would press ahead with its missile programs in spite of U.S. demands that it cease and desist. This is the first time that the missile, named the Khoramshahr, has gone on display in public.

"We will strengthen our defence and military capabilities whether you want it or not," Rouhani said.

Rouhani added that "Iran's military power lies in its commitment to never invade another country or land." At the same time, Iran will continue to support the "oppressed people of Yemen, Syria and Palestine," he said--a reference to Iran's involvement in Syria and Yemen's civil wars and its support of Hamas.

Rouhani's words on the missile program were a direct rebuttal to Presi

dent Trump, who had denounced Rouhani's government as "corrupt," "murderous," and bent on death and destruction in a speech to the U.N. General Assembly this week. It was also an open defiance of the Trump administration's enactment last month of a bill imposing penalties on anyone who is involved with Iran's ballistic-missile program and anyone who does business with them.

The Trump administration has insisted that Iran must dismantle its missile programs if it is to remain party to the 2015 nuclear accord, under which Iran getS sanctions relief in exchange for not pursuing nuclear weapons. However, Trump has more recently implied that he is inclined to do away with the accord whether Iran is compliant with its terms or not.
