Asian Journal - - Asia -

Tehran: Iran’s De­fence Min­is­ter Hos­sein De­hqan said here on Wed­nes­day that the long-range Emad mis­sile which Iran test-fired in Oc­to­ber was “to­tally con­ven­tional”, the of­fi­cial IRNA news agency re­ported. In Oc­to­ber, Iran an­nounced that Emad was the coun­try’s first long-range mis­sile that could be guided and con­trolled un­til hit­ting the tar­get with high pre­ci­sion. The re­marks by De­hqan came as a re­sponse to a UN ex­perts’ re­port on Tues­day, which said Iran vi­o­lated the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil Res­o­lu­tion 1929 by test-fir­ing the Emad mis­sile ca­pa­ble of de­liv­er­ing a nu­clear war­head.
