Iran Unveils 2,000 km-Range Ballistic Missile: Report
TEHRAN: Iran has unveiled its fourth-generation Khorramshahr ballistic missile, codenamed Khyber, with a range of 2,000 km (1,243 miles) and a 1,500 kg (3,300 lb) warhead, the official IRNA news agency said on Thursday.
Iran has expanded its missile program, particularly its ballistic missiles, despite opposition from the United States and concerns from European countries.
Tehran says the plan is purely defensive and preventive.
“Iran’s new ballistic missile and the latest product of the Defense Ministry’s Aerospace Industries Organization (AIO) were unveiled today at a ceremony attended by the Defense Minister,” IRNA added.
