Iran announced the "successful test" of a new cruise missile with a range of over 1,350 kilometres on Saturday, coinciding with celebrations for the country's 1979 Islamic revolution. "It can be ready in the shortest possible time and flies at a very low altitude".
Hatami said the new surface-to-surface missile, named Hoveizeh, was from the Soumar family of cruise missiles, which were unveiled in 2015.
Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Revolutionary Guard aerospace division, said Iran had overcome initial problems in producing jet engines for cruise missiles and could now manufacture a full range of the weapons.
Washington warned Teheran last month against undertaking three planned rocket launches that it said would violate a UN Security Council resolution because they use ballistic missile technology.
But Tehran denies seeking any nuclear weapons capability, and insists that its missile development programme is "purely defensive" and compliant with the resolution.
Salami underlined that Iran's missile power is unstoppable and no one can pressure the Islamic Republic on its defensive programs.

Trump says talks with China going well, hopeful on North Korea

Iran is claiming to have fired a new long-range ballistic missile - dubbed the Hoveiseh - capable of hitting a target 1,300km away.
U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran in May of a year ago, accusing Tehran, among other things, of working to develop its long-range ballistic missile program.
But Iran then issued conflicting statements initially saying there were no public or secret talks taking place with France or anyone else regarding their missile programme. Iran will be forced to make a "strategic leap" if European or other countries try to limit its missile might, Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the second-in-command of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, has said.
Since agreeing to a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, Iran has expanded its missile program despite warnings from the United States.
Iran has developed a large domestic arms industry in the face of decades-long worldwide sanctions and bans that barred it from importing most weapons.
In August past year, Iran unveiled what it called its first-ever domestically produced fighter jet dubbed "Kowsar".
Experts said that while some of the new aircraft could have been built on the old designs and could have upgraded the electronics systems, the design of the aircraft was clearly not new.
