Iran: Thousands march on 1979 anniversary, chant anti-Israel, anti-US slogans

Iran marks 1979 revolution with anti-Israel, anti-US demonstration

A ballistic missile was put on display as part of the celebration. Last month, Trump broke ranks with European allies, Russian Federation and China by refusing to re-certify Iran's compliance with its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, reached during his predecessor Barack Obama's tenure.

The US Congress must now make a decision regarding the nuclear deal, which saw Iran agree to limit its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.

Shamkhani also noted that the countries that have supported the US's anti-Iran stance over the past years were themselves at a loss.

The date marks three significant events in the country's history that portray the U.S.in a negative light: the arrest of future Islamic Republic founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini by the USA - and United Kingdom -installed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in 1964; the outbreak of bloody clashes between students and the shah's forces in 1978; and the storming of the US embassy in 1979 that began a 444-day hostage crisis. The U.S. cut its diplomatic relations with Iran after the embassy takeover and has had no diplomatic relations since. The result has been a sharp rise in Iranian influence-especially in Iraq and Syria, two countries where the USA has increasingly struggled to achieve its own goals.

Turnout for the annual Iranian street rallies that commemorate the embassy takeover, a pivotal event of the Islamic Revolution, appeared higher this year, than when Barack Obama pursued detente with Tehran.

Michigan State upsets Penn State after lengthy delay

A crowd chanted "Death to Israel" and "Down with the U.S." during the celebration.

Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said this week that Iran must resist the United States.

The historic pact between Iran and major powers, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was concluded in 2015 and went into force in January 2016, a year before Trump took office.

In an address to the Saturday rally in Tehran, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani said that the US's foreign policy had failed.

Though U.S. diplomats and Central Intelligence Agency officers shredded thousands of documents before the students entered the building, the Iranian researchers spent years piecing each paper slice back together. "I don't see any solution in my child's lifetime, let alone mine". It appeared to be an effort by Iranian authorities to contrast its missile programme against those of countries like North Korea, which now uses its arsenal to threaten the United States.
