Head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Gen. Hossein Salami said Saturday that the military had successfully test-fired a new missile, APA reports citing Sputnik.

The announcement of the test comes days after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the Middle Eastern country won't start a conflict in the Persian Gulf but will defend itself.

"Our country is always the arena for testing a variety of defence and strategic systems and these are non-stop movements towards the growth of our deterrent power," Salami said. "And yesterday was one of the successful days for this nation."

The official hasn't provided any additional information on the missile.
