Iran tests missile in display before nuclear talks

The Hawk surface-to-air missile system was tested near Arak in central Iran.

Tehran: Iran says it has test-fired an anti-aircraft missile near a nuclear site in a military display before talks resume with world powers over Tehran`s uranium enrichment program. The semi-official Fars news agency says the "Hawk" surface-to-air missile system was tested near Arak in central Iran,
where a research reactor is under construction.

The report on Wednesday gave no other details. US-made Hawk missiles were purchased by Iran before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, but Iran says it has made its own versions.

The test appeared to be designed to show Iran`s resolve to defend its nuclear sites.
Talks with the United States and five other world powers resume in Istanbul on Friday.
