Officials announced Friday that the missile would be tested "soon".
In a rejoinder to Trump's call to renegotiate the nuclear deal, he said that "all countries" at the General Assembly meeting supported the nuclear deal, "except the United States and the Zionist regime", a reference to Israel.
"We will strengthen our missile capabilities".
State TV said the Khorramshahr missile is the country's third to have a range of 1,200 miles (2,000km).
Iranian officials have argued that the measure only applies to missiles specifically created to carry nuclear warheads.
Friday's parade and missile display come days after Iran was called out in a speech by President Trump at the United Nations General Assembly, in which he called the nuclear deal with Iran "one of the worst and one-sided transactions" the US has ever conducted. We will not seek anyone's permission to defend our land. "Israel will defend itself with the full force of our arms and the full power of our convictions", Netanyahu said at the UN.
"The Iran Deal will shrink wrap Iran's nuclear program for a generation", said Joe Cirincione, the president of Ploughshares Fund, a foundation promoting nuclear deproliferation, at the time of the deal. The missile is named Khorramshahr after the Iranian city where the first major engagement of the war occurred.

Meanwhile, about two-dozen volunteers are expected to be recruited later for a second trip to the damaged area. Twelve members of the state's Electric Cooperatives of SC association reported 7,560 outages around SC .
"The ballistic missile will be operational in the near future".
In apparent defiance to U.S. President Donald Trump's demands, Iranian President Hassan Rohani insisted his country will ask no one's permission to build up its missile stock.
On Friday night Iran released footage of the successful test-launch of its new ballistic missile, called Khorramshahr, with a range of 2,000 kilometers.
According to Tasnim news agency, the missile is able to carry a multiple independently tar reentry vehicle (MIRV) weighing 1,800 kilograms.
Worldwide experts are nearly unanimous in their opinion that Iran is abiding by the pact that saw Tehran agree to limit its nuclear program, which the West believed was aimed at developing weapons, in exchange for the easing of global economic sanctions.
