An international conference opened in Tehran on Wednesday, bringing together guests from a number of foreign countries, to celebrate the victory anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
The International Seminar of Foreign Guests of the 37th Anniversary of Victory of the Islamic Revolution kicked off in Tehran on Wednesday morning, at the IRIB International Conference Center.

Every year, millions of Iranian people of different social strata, carrying flags and banners in support of the Islamic Republic, pour into the streets in nationwide mass rallies to commemorate the anniversary of the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
