Iran adds missile to annual anti-US pageant

Share

Thousands of Iranian demonstrators have taken to Taleghani Avenue, the street facing the former US embassy in Tehran, to mark their National Day of Fight Against Global Arrogance. A ballistic missile was put on display as part of the celebration.

After Iranian students seized the USA embassy in Tehran in 1979, they spent years painstakingly reassembling the intelligence reports shredded by the CIA officers who were some of the last workers captured, according to the BBC.

Touching upon the refusal of US President Trump to approve JCPOA, Salehi said he makes unfounded and false claims against Iran at the United Nations General Assembly, against the Iranian nation, which shows the true nature of the American politicians. Under that deal, most worldwide sanctions on Iran were lifted in exchange for Tehran curbing nuclear activity.

The US cut its diplomatic relations with Iran following the embassy takeover and has had no diplomatic relations since. Trump's decision did not undo the agreement, which European countries and Iran continue to support, but allows Congress to decide whether to reimpose certain sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Iran's commemorations took place under tight security managed by Iranian police and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

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. State television said similar celebrations were being held in other Iranian cities and towns.

"The United States must convince Iran that its security would be enhanced through regional arms control".

Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the country's Supreme National Security Council, addressed the crowd on Saturday, saying Iran will make any sanctions imposed by the USA "ineffective", even as Washington targets Iran's economic, nuclear and defensive power.

The former USA embassy in Tehran is now a cultural centre but stands as a symbol of a United States defeat for many Iranians.

"Such foolish words reveal that the Americans are not only an enemy to the leadership and government of Iran, but they are hostile to the very existence of a tireless nation that has for decades stood against them", Khamenei told a group of students Thursday, according to Iran's semi-official Mehr News Agency.
