Giving further details about the weapon, Mr Hatami said the new surface-to-surface missile, called Hoveizeh, come from the Soumar family of cruise missiles, unveiled in 2015.

Trump warned about the dangers posed by Iran on January 30 while criticizing his intelligence chiefs for being naive about the threat from the Islamic regime.

Although Tehran insists its missiles are defensive and meant to serve as deterrence against its enemies, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United States accuse the Islamic Republic of behaving aggressively.

Help us grow and continue telling Israel's story to the world. While western experts say Tehran often exaggerates the capability of its armament, they conceded there are concerns surrounding Iran's long-range ballistic missiles such as this one. "They are wrong! When I became President Iran was making trouble all over the Middle East, and beyond".

The intelligence agency chiefs "said that they were totally misquoted and ... it was taken out of context", Trump said.

Washington warned Tehran this month against undertaking three planned rocket launches that it said would violate a U.N. Security Council resolution because they use ballistic missile technology.

Iran launches NEW Hoveyzeh missile on 40th anniversary on Islamic Revolution

Iran had overcome initial problems in producing jet engines for cruise missiles and could now manufacture a full range of the weapons, according to Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Revolutionary Guard's aerospace division.

Iranian officials have been repeating the message that the U.S. sanctions have failed to force Tehran to terminate its missile program.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani recently admitted that his country was under serious economic pressure due to the November 2018 economic sanctions imposed by the US.

The EU countries have been considering the idea of a special payment channel with Iran since previous year, after the US' dramatic withdrawal from the landmark nuclear deal, signed by Tehran and six world powers in 2015. Washington asserts that some of the tests and weapons, including the satellite vehicle, are in violation of a United Nations Security Council resolution that enshrined the Iran nuclear deal.

According to Press TV, the remarks came amid statements of some European Union governments that Iran needs to avoid long-range missile tests in order to enjoy economic benefits of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the Iran nuclear deal.

Salami said Iran's decision to limit the range and the number of its ballistic missiles was based on its current strategy, which could change based on circumstances.

But Iran then issued conflicting statements initially saying there were no public or secret talks taking place with France or anyone else regarding their missile programme.
