The missile tested yesterday, Shahab-3, was built by the clerical regime with North Korean and Chinese assistance and is capable of carrying chemical and nuclear warheads. Last January, the Iranian Resistance revealed precise information about this missile.
The NCR representative added: "The project to obtain weapons of mass destruction, including medium-range missiles, has been on the clerical regime's agenda since Hashemi Rafsanjani's presidency and pursued relentlessly during Mohammad Khatami's tenure. A huge budget has been allocated to this project."
