These nationwide rallies each year are an important opportunity for Iran’s leadership to demonstrate the popularity of the Islamic Republic to both domestic and foreign critics.

“[I am] happy that after the 39th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution, and on the threshold of the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Republic of Iran, that the people of Islamic Iran are continuing on the path of the goals of the revolution with more strength and enthusiasm.” President Rouhani said, noting that a large turnout would “for months disappoint the enemies” of Iran.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei said: “The grandeur of your demonstration today, which according to accurate estimates was more crowded than previous years, gave a firm and crushing response to foreigners and enemies and those with a weak resolve.”

The leader said although enemies did their utmost to abolish this year’s revolution anniversary ceremony, but it turned against themselves.

“You showed off to them the liveliness and dynamism of the revolution in practice and shouted out your commitment to the ideals of the late Imam through your slogans and your warm presence [in nationwide rallies],” he added.
