The vote came two weeks after US President Donald Trump's decision to decertify the Iranian nuclear deal, as part of Washington's efforts to toughen its policy toward Iran without undermining the agreement.

Thousands gathered at the former U.S. embassy in downtown Tehran where a missile, believed to be a 2,000-kilometre-range solid-fuel Sejjil, was on display.

Later in the day, the semi-official Tasnim news agency, which has ties to the elite Revolutionary Guard, said the missile was a Qadr-F that has the same range as a Sejil.
