London, Apr. 01 – The United States called Iran’s test-firing of a radar-evading “multiple warhead” missile a demonstration of its “very active and aggressive military program”.

“We’ve seen, obviously, reports of the test. … I think it demonstrates that Iran has a very active and aggressive military program underway”, U.S. State Department spokesman Adam Ereli said, highlighting Tehran’s “efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction, as well as delivery systems”.

“It’s a reminder of where Iran’s intentions lie”, Ereli said.

“I think Iran’s military posture, military development effort is of concern to the international community, as evidenced by the kind of consensus you’re seeing with regard to their nuclear program, as well as other non-proliferation concerns”, he added. On Wednesday, the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted a “Presidential Statement” giving Iran 30 days to halt all its uranium enrichment activities.

On Friday, a top commander in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) told Iranian state television that the Islamic Republic had successfully fired its first stealth missile.

“Today, we successfully tested a new-generation missile capable of striking several targets simultaneously”, Brigadier General Hossein Salami, who commands the IRGC Air Force, said.

The new domestically-produced missile can “hide from radars” and “evade anti-missile missiles”, Salami said.

The missile makes use of modern “multiple warhead” technology which allows it to strike several targets simultaneously with superior accuracy.

The missile was more advanced than those found in the armies of Iran’s adversaries, he said.

It was fired during the first day of weeklong large-scale naval exercises in the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman. Images of the missile taking off were aired on state television.

A Shahab-2 missile was also fired “to show Iran’s desire for peace and friendship with neighbouring countries”.
