The medium-range precision-guided projectile named Kheibar (Khoramshahr 4) was unveiled in the presence of Defense Minister Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Ashtiani during the ceremony marking the 41st anniversary of the liberation of the southwestern city of Khorramshahr on Thursday, May 18. Kheibar is a liquid-fueled missile with a range of 2,000 km and a warhead weighing 1,500 kg with strategic and tactical capabilities.

Later on Thursday, US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said Iran’s development and proliferation of ballistic missiles pose a serious threat to regional and international security. France also claimed that the move was in violation of the UN resolution that endorsed the 2015 nuclear deal.

Iranian officials have long asserted that the country’s military capabilities are entirely meant for defense and that its missile program will never be up for negotiations.
