Iran denies nuclear missile test

Iran on Wednesday denied having tested a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, as stated by Britain. "None of the missiles tested by Iran is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead," said the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ramin Mehmanparast. The British Foreign Minister, William Hague, told Parliament on Wednesday that Iran was testing missiles capable of carrying nuclear cargo.

Iran, which is mired in a dispute with the West over its nuclear program, is conducting a military exercise 10 days in a show of force that it hopes to deter Israel and the U.S. to launch an attack. As part of the exercise, which began on Monday, Iran tested surface-to-surface 14 on Tuesday, with a maximum of two thousand kilometers.
