Iran marked the 38th anniversary of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran on Saturday by displaying a missile and holding anti-U.S. demonstrations.

"The Americans have spared no efforts against the Iranian nation", he said, adding that the anti-Iran measures include attempts to overthrow the government, attempts to hamper the progress of Iran's missile program and scientific advances, and waging a propaganda war against the Iranian nation.

Iranians burn a doll representing Israel and America during a demonstration outside the former USA embassy in the Iranian capital Tehran on November 4, 2017, marking the anniversary of its storming by student protesters that triggered a hostage crisis in 1979.

A few months after the toppling of the US -backed government of the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Iranian students, believing the USA embassy was being used as cover for espionage activity aimed at overthrowing the Islamic Republic, stormed the building.

Tensions reached a boiling point, after president Trump refused to certify the Islamic Republic's compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal in mid-October. A ballistic missile was put on display, as protesters burned American flags and Trump's effigies. 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.

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

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

A recent survey conducted by the Afkar Iranian Center, a public opinion polling institute, indicates that 94.5 percent of Iranians do not trust the United States.

In an address to the Saturday rally in Tehran, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani said that the US's foreign policy had failed. He called the US the "eternal enemy" of Iran.

In fact, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Tehran on Wednesday, where Khamenei told him that Tehran and Moscow must step up cooperation to isolate the United States and help defuse conflict in the Middle East. Iran and Russia both fight on the side of Syrian President Bashar al Assad.
