Thousands of Iranians protested in Tehran against Trump policies

Vastavam web: Chanting “Death to America” and burning the US flag, thousands of Iranians protested in Tehran today against President Donald Trump’s policies and to mark the anniversary of the 1979 US embassy siege.The storming of the embassy in Tehran by students, months after the Islamic revolution, led to a 444-day hostage crisis and a break in diplomatic relations that continues to this day.Trump’s administration has taken a tougher line with Iran, threatening to tear up an international accord on its nuclear programme.
Last month Trump refused to certify the 2015 deal between Tehran and world powers that lifted sanctions in return for limits on Iran’s atomic programme, saying he could pull out “at any time”.The United States has also imposed new sanctions over the Islamic republic’s ballistic missile programme.Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged Iranians on Thursday to never forget that “America is the enemy”.
