Iran shows off missile to mark 38th anniversary of US Embassy takeover

Iran shows off missile to mark 38th anniversary of US Embassy takeover

He said that during the 18 months of negotiations leading to the nuclear agreement, Iran resisted the United States pressure to put up its missile program for negotiations and successfully campaigned to limit the talks to the nuclear issue due to a lack of global support for the U.S. position.

The medium-range missile is liquid-fueled, with a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,243 miles), according to the semiofficial Fars News agency, which says it can reach as far as Israel.

The embassy was stormed by Iranian students on November 4, 1979, and its personnel were held hostage for 444 days. They took 52 Americans hostage for 444 days after Washington refused to hand over the shah, who was in the US.

Iran's supreme leader blasted President Donald Trump's harsh condemnation of his country last month, and emphasized his commitment to resisting USA attempts to renegotiate a multilateral nuclear treaty and to defending his country's reputation from accusations by Washington.

"Instead of confronting Iran directly, the United States should pursue a different strategy-one predicated on sticking to the JCPOA and engaging with Iran and other regional players on the broader set of security challenges in the Middle East", he said. A ballistic missile was put on display, as protesters burned American flags and Trump's effigies. Trump broke ranks with European allies, Russian Federation and China last month, and refused to re-certify Iran's compliance, even though Iran reaffirmed its commitment to the deal and United Nations inspectors have verified Tehran is complying with its terms.

He was tied for the league lead with 19 touchdown passes and had gained almost 2,000 total yards (1,699 passing and 269 rushing). Hyde leads the league in interceptions with five, and the Bills lead the NFL in takeaways and turnover margin.

Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the country's Supreme National Security Council, addressed the crowd, saying Iran will make any sanctions imposed by the U.S. 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.

Crowds chanted slogans condemning Washington's policies toward Iran and shouted "Down With the U.S.".

In an interview with Iran IRIB1 Negahe Yek on Saturday, Salehi said Amano has a special responsibility at this time, and the IAEA is the only authority that can assess the obligations of the member states, and tries to take necessary measures according to the events occurring in the U.S. against JCPOA.

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.

The US cut its diplomatic relations with Iran following the embassy takeover and has had no diplomatic relations since.
