Iran has test-fired a new space rocket, built with North Korean technology, which could be used to deliver nuclear warheads.

The Simorgh space rocket was fired on Tuesday from a secret Iranian missile base.

According to reports, the rocket did not put any satellite into orbit and the launch may not have been a success.

US State Department official John Kirby told the Washington Beacon he was unable to confirm a missile launch from Iran. ‘Obviously we’re watching this as best we can. Certainly if it’s true and we’re talking about a ballistic missile launch or the testing of ballistic missile technologies, that’s obviously of concern to us. It’s not consistent, as we said before, with the Security Council resolution.’

The rocket is believed to be based on North Korean technology and it is feared it is capable of delivering a nuclear warhead.
