Iran will not allow the United States to achieve its ends by exerting sanction pressures against the country and creating challenges for Iran in the region, Rouhani told a large gathering at Azadi Square in Iran's capital Tehran on the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

Waving Iranian flags, chanting "Death to America" and burning US and Israeli flags, hundreds of thousands of people poured out onto the streets across Iran on Monday, marking the date that's considered victory day in the country's 1979 Islamic Revolution.

"Our condition in Iran is much better than they thought", the Iranian president stressed.

He advised USA officials to learn lessons from the high turnout of Iranian people in the Islamic Revolution anniversary celebrations and stop making wrong comments about Iran by exercising wisdom and abandoning old grudges.

Rouhani also touched upon his country's support to some regional countries, saying its helps have aborted the enemies' plots. Today, the United States, its Arab allies and Israel are trying to counter Tehran's growing influence in the Middle East, where it has proxies in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Monday laid historical claims to a number of Arabian Gulf countries without naming them. In a Mossad operation, Israel past year spirited out a trove of Iranian documentation from Tehran's pre-deal nuclear weapons archive, which Netanyahu said proved conclusively that Iran is lying when it says it never worked towards a nuclear weapons arsenal. "We have not - and will not - ask for permission from anybody for improving our defensive power".

On Feb. 11, 1979 Iran's army declared its neutrality, paving the way for the fall of US -backed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.
