  • Iran unveils long-range cruise missile on anniversary of revolution

"The test of the Hoveizeh cruise missile was carried out successfully at a range of 1,200 kilometers [840 miles] and accurately hit the set target", Brig.

Tehran has showcased a new, long-range cruise missile, capable of covering over 1,350 kilometers.

The Defence Ministry's website carried an undated video purportedly showing the Hoveizeh being test-fired from a mobile launcher.

As Reuters reports, Iran has expanded its missile programme, particularly its ballistic missiles, in defiance of opposition from the United States and expressions of concern by European countries.

Iran's space program has also come under Western criticism, with Washington charging that an abortive satellite launch in mid-January was cover for a bid at an intercontinental ballistic missile capability.

France, Germany and Britain have opened a new channel for non-dollar trade with Iran to get around the sanctions, reimposed on Iran after President Donald Trump's decision in May to exit a 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and six major powers.

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

Up to 7,000 German business enterprises are estimated to seek continued trade with Iran, says the managing director of the German-Iranian Chamber of Commerce, following the launch of a payment vehicle that enables continued European trade with the Islamic Republic irrespective of unilateral sanctions by the United States.

Ali Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, told Fars, a semiofficial news agency, that Iran could produce more 20 percent uranium on a four-day notice. On withdrawal, the U.S. also re-imposed its so-called primary sanctions against Iran and secondary sanctions against countries that continue to do business with it.

The SPV will operate as a clearinghouse via mirror-image financial transactions, essentially facilitating barter trade, such as the exchange of Iranian oil for medicine or food exports from Europe.

Following the USA exit, Iran and the remaining parties launched talks to save the accord.

According to Larijani, the European Union wants Iran to join the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) - an intergovernmental body established in 1989 to counter terrorism financing, money laundering and other threats to the global financial system.

"If the Europeans, or anyone else, want to conspire to disarm Iran of missiles, we will be forced to make a strategic leap", the guards' deputy commander Brigadier-General Hossein Salami said on state TV on Saturday.
