Iran rejects calls from U.S. to abandon missile program

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani doubles down on strengthening the country’s ballistic missile program, despite sharp criticism from the U.S. Rouhani made the comments at a military parade Saturday commemorating the start of Iran’s eight-year war with neighboring Iraq, which began back in 1980. This comes just one day after UN Amabassador Nikki Haley accused Tehran of arming its proxies in Iraq with ballistic missile capabilities.
