Report: Iran Tests 2 Short-Range Missiles in War Games
Sunday, September 27, 2009
Iran tested two short-range missiles Sunday as its elite Revolutionary Guards began several days of war games, state television reported. Press TV reported that the missiles tested were the Fateh-110 and Tondar-69, but did not give specifics on the range or other details. The report said the tests also included a multiple missile launcher.
"Iran tests two short-range missiles," Press TV said in a scrolling headline. Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps announced Saturday it would begin war games which would include surface-to-surface missile launches.
Reuters reported state radio as also saying Sunday that Tehran would test-fire a missile Monday capable of hitting Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf region. The missile maneuvers coincide with tension over Iran's nuclear program following the disclosure of a second uranium-enrichment plant in the country.
The U.S. and its five partners trying to stop Iran's suspected nuclear weapons program plan to tell Tehran in a key meeting on Thursday that it must provide "unfettered access" to its previously secret Qom enrichment facility within weeks, an official said.
The six countries will demand that Iran prove to the increasingly skeptical group that its intentions with its various sites are peaceful and energy-related, as Iran claims, and not for weapons development, as the West believes, the official said Saturday.
Reuters reported Iran's ambassador to the U.N.'s nuclear agency watchdog, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, as saying Sunday that "fabricated Western clamor" over the facility would negatively affect its talks with world powers.
Iran's nuclear chief had said Saturday his country will allow the U.N. nuclear agency to inspect its newly revealed facility.
An aide to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was also quoted as saying that the facility will soon become operational.
"This new plant, God willing, will soon become operational and will make the enemies blind," Mohammad Mohammadi-Golpayegani, who heads Khamenei's office, said, according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.
