Rohani Blasts U.S. 'Conspiracy' As Iran Marks 40th Anniversary Of Revolution

In an anniversary celebration in Tehran on Monday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani took his own defiant stand against the United States, CNN reported.

Hundreds of thousands of Iranians gathered Monday to mark the 40th anniversary of the country's Islamic Revolution.

Rouhani was referring to the Kingdom of Bahrain, which Iranian officials in the past have referred to as the "14th province".

This year's anniversary come as tensions are rising with the US and Iran is grappling with re-imposed USA sanctions.

In January, President Hassan Rouhani said his country was experiencing its worst economic crisis since the overthrow of the Shah. During the speech, Rouhani also laid claims to several areas including parts of land that are now in Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Georgia.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Iran that this year could be the last time it celebrates the anniversary if it attacks his country. 40 years of terror.

"If this regime makes the awful mistake and tries to destroy Tel Aviv or Haifa, it won't be successful and it will be the last anniversary of their revolution they will ever celebrate".
