"Our focus has been on priorities, with the top priority being the missile issue", he said.

Iran's navy also said on Saturday that it has mounted a locally built "Kamand" advanced defensive weapons system on one of its warships for the first time, as tensions mount with the U.S. military in the Gulf.

Brigadier General Amir Hatami said in a live TV program on Saturday that the fighter jet would fly on Wednesday, which marks Iran's Defense Industry Day. Iran celebrates National Defence Industry Day on 22 August.

Iran's air force's efforts to build the homespun stealth fighter jet have been hampered by global sanctions and embargoes.

Mr Trump said the deal was deeply flawed as it had not affected Iran's ballistic missile programme or cut its support for proxies in conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

The Trump administration announced last month it is quietly pushing ahead with a bid to create a new security and political alliance with six Gulf Arab states, Egypt and Jordan, in part to counter Iran's expansion in the region, according to US and Arab officials.

In comments in February 2018, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called for efforts to maintain and boost Iran's defense capabilities, hitting back at the enemies for disputing the country's missile program. "With better management and planning we can resist the sanctions and overcome them,"Khamenei said".

Last week, speaking at the unveiling of the new, pin-pointing missile Fateh Mobin in Tehran, Hatami declared: "The Islamic Republic of Iran's missile power is a defensive deterrent power and as I had promised our dear people, I will not spare any efforts to increase the country's missile capabilities and certainly, we will increase our missile power on a daily basis". The project has relied on United States fighter aircraft acquired before the 1979 Iranian revolution, as well as several Russian jets it has had in its inventory.

The semiofficial Tasnim news agency quoted Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi as saying that "coastal and sea testing of the short-range defense Kamand system was concluded successfully, and said this system was mounted.on a warship and will be mounted on a second ship soon".

Iran's Revolutionary Guard said this month it held war games in the Gulf aimed at "confronting possible threats" by enemies.

In a move apparently created to send a message to Washington, Iran on August 2 launched major naval exercises in the Persian Gulf involving more than 100 vessels, US officials told Reuters.
