President Donald Trump has threatened to junk the agreement over the issue, saying that Iran's missile programme could give it the technical knowhow for a delivery system for a nuclear warhead with the expiration of a sunset clause in the deal in 2025.

With such a range, the missile would be easily capable of reaching Israel and Saudi Arabia.

The missile, named after Iran's southwestern city of Khorramshahr, is capable of carrying multiple warheads, said Commander of the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Lieutenant General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.

The unveiling of the new missile comes two months after Iran launched a missile into space, prompting a new round of sanctions and criticism from the United States.

"Whether you (the Western powers) want it or not, we will increase our defensive and military capabilities as a deterrent, as much as we deem appropriate".

Iran unveiled the Khorramshahr missile during a military parade earlier on Friday.

Israel's Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Saturday denounced Iran's testing of a medium-range missile as a "provocation" and said it was proof of Tehran's ambition to become a world power.

The Iran nuclear deal was orchestrated by the Obama administration and put strains on USA relations with enemies of Iran, including Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Rouhani spoke during a military parade on Friday commemorating the 1980s Iran-Iraq war, the Associated Press reported.

It also imposed sanctions on Iran after a ballistic missile test in January.

A ballistic missile, called Khorramshahr, was put on display during the parade.

The new missile can be equipped with multiple warheads, not only one, Tasnim news agency reports.

She added: "History and the experience of other rogue states such as North Korea has also shown the Iranian government that it is only from a position of strength that regimes such as Iran's can be protected".

The president called on the world to join the U.S.

Global experts are nearly unanimous in their opinion that Iran is abiding by the pact that saw Tehran agree to limit its nuclear program, which the West believed was aimed at developing weapons, in exchange for the easing of worldwide economic sanctions.
