Speaking to reporters, while attending a rally in Tehran on Monday to mark the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, Larijani said the massive marches today prove that nothing can prevent the people from participating in their millions.    

“The enemies should understand that the revolution’s roots are strong and in the campaign, the Iranian nation is (standing) in unison,” he noted.

Undoubtedly, the massive presence of the people in the marches marking the revolution’s anniversary and the nation’s support will frustrate the enemies, and they would look for other scenarios after this failure, he went on to say.

The remarks came as the Iranian people attended nationwide demonstrations on Monday in celebration of the 40th anniversary of victory of the 1979 revolution which founded the Islamic Republic in the country.

The rallies began at 9 a.m. (local time) in more than 1,000 cities and towns as well as 10,000 villages across Iran.

The Iranian nation toppled the US-backed Pahlavi regime on February 11, 1979, ending the 2,500 years of monarchy in the country.

Every year Iranians mark anniversary of their Islamic Revolution from February 1 to 11, known as the Ten-Day Fajr ceremonies. On February 1, 1979, Imam Khomeini returned home from years of exile in Iraq, Turkey and France and led a historical revolution that overthrew the Pahlavi regime.
