Iran's president on Monday insisted "enemy" plots against the country would fail as vast crowds marked 40 years since the Islamic revolution at a time of heightened tensions with the United States.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps spokesman, Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif, said during the rally that "Islamic Iran has reached a level [that enables it] to protect its borders by effective military capabilities, and firmly punish any aggressor", according to Reuters citing IRNA.

'The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future, ' he added.

Iranians march towards Azadi (Freedom) Square during a ceremony celebrating the 40th anniversary of Islamic Revolution in the capital Tehran on February 11, 2019.

"The Iranian people have and will have some economic difficulties but we will overcome the problems by helping each other", he said.

Bolton said Washington would support 'the will of the Iranian people, & stand behind them to ensure their voices are heard'.

Monday's rallies included chants and banners declaring "Death to America" and "Death to Israel".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani delivered a fiery speech in Azadi Square in Tehran on Monday.

The rallies on the national holiday of "Bahman 22nd" began at 9 am local time in more than 1,000 cities and towns as well as 10,000 villages across Iran.

The Trump administration has pushed hard to weaken Iran and what it says is Tehran's "destabilizing" influence.

Following reports of a second failed space launch by Iran in less than a month, the U.S. State Department last week called for "tougher global restrictions to deter Iran's missile program".

Trump also shared another tweet with the same message in Farsi, which is widely spoken in Iran.

"The United States does not have the courage to fire a single bullet at us despite all its defensive and military assets".

Monday's celebrations in Tehran were also a backdrop to the military's display of Iranian-made missiles, which authorities showcase every year during anniversary celebrations.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed the threat.

"If this regime makes the mistake of threatening us and tries to destroy Tel Aviv or Haifa, they won't succeed, and it will be the last anniversary of the revolution that they celebrate. They should take this into account", Netanyahu said in a warning to his country's archfoe.

Washington and the Arab world have viewed Iran with great suspicion since the Islamic Revolution, fearing Khomeini's radical ideology would inspire militants across the Middle East.

Today, Iran enjoys growing influence through proxies in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen, raising concerns in Sunni Saudi Arabia, which accuses its rival of trying to dominate the Middle East. Tehran denies that. "I am not ignoring the threats of the Iranian regime, but nor I am impressed by them", he said.

Yadollah Javani is the Revolutionary Guards' assistant head for political affairs.
