In Iran, hundreds of thousands of people gathered Sunday to mark the 39th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. During the demonstrations, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani reaffirmed Iran’s commitment to the 2015 nuclear deal and criticized the United States for threatening to undo the landmark accord.
President Hassan Rouhani: “We witnessed the failure of America in the past year. The Americans wanted to interfere in our state matters. But our people said no to them. Through their unity, through their togetherness, through their steadfastness, they nullified the Americans’ plans and conspiracies.”
