Iran denies British nuclear missile claim

British Foreign Secretary said the tests were in clear contravention of UN resolution 1929.



London: Iran has been carrying out covert ballistic missile tests and rocket launches including testing missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Wednesday.

He told parliament the tests were in clear contravention of U.N resolution 1929.

Meanwhile, Iran denied testing a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

"None of the missiles tested by Iran is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead," Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said.

Iran, at loggerheads with the West over its nuclear program, is carrying out a 10-day military exercise in a show of strength it hopes will warn Israel and the United States against any attack.

As part of the exercise, it test-fired surface-to-surface missiles Tuesday with a maximum range of 2,000 km (1,250 miles).
