Iranian Nation Has Set a Record in Humiliating US: Shamkhani

Iran displays missile on anniversary of US embassy takeover Iran: Thousands march on 1979 anniversary, chant anti-Israel, anti-US slogans

Iranians have taken to the streets across the nation to commemorate the anniversary of the takeover of the American embassy in Tehran 38 years ago.

The 2015 nuclear deal with six world powers was reached during 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.

Demonstrators, mostly students, waved flags and signs, some which read "Stop Terrorism" and "Shut up Trump", to show their discontent toward the hardline stance taken by the US government.

Last month, Trump declined to certify Iran's compliance with the agreement - under which Iran curbed uranium enrichment in exchange for relief from worldwide sanctions.

The anniversary has become a day of Iranian nationalism.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threatened to "shred" the pact if the United States pulls out.

Battle for Azeroth Is the Next Expansion
The Alliance will begin in the pirate-infested Kul Tiras, while the Horde will tackle the trolls on the continent of Zandalar. Those who choose to play with PvP on will also get bonuses like extra experience, to reward their added risk.

The other parties to the nuclear deal - Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany - have voiced concern over Trump's opposition, fearing this could stir new Middle East instability. A ballistic missile was put on display as part of the celebration. Still, the Europeans share United States concern over Iran's ballistic missile program and "destabilizing" regional behavior.

The increasing tension between Iran and the West reached a peak last week when the US House of Representatives voted almost unanimously to impose new sanctions on Iran for its development of ballistic missiles.

Tasnim added that Brig.

A statement read out at Saturday's protest said Iranians "see the criminal America as their main enemy and condemn the denigrating remarks of the hated U.S. president against the great Iranian people and the Revolutionary Guards".

On November 4, 1979, a group of Iranian university students took over the USA diplomatic mission, which they believed had turned into a centre of espionage aimed at overthrowing the then-nascent Islamic Republic. The U.S. cut its diplomatic relations with Iran after the embassy takeover and has had no diplomatic relations since.
