Tehran, Feb 11 - Iran has successfully test-fired two missiles, including a surface-to-surface long-range ballistic missile, state media reported Monday.
The test-fired ballistic missile was a “new generation” of the country’s previously developed ballistic missiles, Xinhua quoted Defence Minister Hossein Dehqan as saying.
The new ballistic missile is of radar-evading capability, Dehqan said, adding that this missile is developed for destroying enemy’s military equipment.
Another test-fired missile — Bina — is laser-guided and can be launched from the ground or from aircraft, said Dehqan, adding that it is used for targeting armored tank, bridges, commandment headquarters and enemy’s military equipment.
On Monday, Iran’s deputy foreign minister and a senior nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi, said that Iran’s defensive issues are a red line for the country and it will not allow “such issues to be raised in upcoming nuclear talks” with powers.
