Iran colluding with N. Korea on nukes: Trump

IRAN stands accused by Donald Trump of colluding with North Korea after testing a new medium-range ballistic missile, with the President again calling into question a landmark nuclear deal with the US and other world powers.

"Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel. They are also working with North Korea. Not much of an agreement we have!" Mr Trump tweeted.

Iran's state media showed video on Saturday of the successful test-launch, saying the missile had a range of 2000km.

Just hours earlier, the Khorramshahr missile was unveiled at a large military parade presided over by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who vowed to continue Tehran's missile program in defiance of demands from Washington to halt it.

Mr Rouhani said Iran would strengthen its missile capabilities without asking for any country's permission.

His comments came just days after Mr Trump delivered a speech at the United Nations in which he accused Iran of exporting violence to Yemen, Syria and other parts of the Middle East, and called Iran's government a "murderous regime" that shouldn't be allowed to have missiles.

The President's critique bolstered the view of those who believe the US will walk away from the Iranian nuclear deal struck under Barack Obama. Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia are parties to the pact.

Mr Trump said this week he has reached a decision on the nuclear deal, but hasn't revealed what it is.
