DUBAI - Iran's defense minister said the Islamic Republic had tested a new missile, confirming earlier reports, Tasnim news agency quoted him as saying on Wednesday.

Hossein Dehghan said the test did not violate the country's deal on its nuclear program or the United Nations Security Council's resolution.

"The recent test was in line with our plans and we will not allow foreigners to interfere in our defense affairs," he said.

A U.S. official said Iran on Sunday test-launched a medium-range ballistic missile that exploded after traveling 630 miles (1,010 km).
