Iran paraded 30 missiles with a nominal range of 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) Sunday, the first time it had displayed so many with a stated capacity to hit Israeli targets.

Iran [2] displayed 12 Sejil and 18 Ghadr missiles at the annual parade marking the anniversary of the outbreak of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war.

The stated range of both missiles would put not only Israel [3] but also US bases in the Gulf within reach.

Iran’s President Hassan Rohani, speaking at the parade on the eve of a trip to New York to attend the UN General Assembly, declared his country is ready for talks with the West on its disputed nuclear [4] problem.

Rohani, who was elected in June promising a new willingness to engage diplomatically with the world, has said the trip may be a chance to start a new round of nuclear negotiations.
