Iran has test-fired a new missile, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has said, according to the country's Tasnim news agency.

"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," Major General Hossein Salami said on Saturday.

"And yesterday was one of the successful days for this nation," he said, without providing more information about the missile.

On Thursday, Iran displayed what it described as a domestically-built long-range, surface-to-air missile defence system.
