"We have not asked and will not ask for permission to develop different types of [.] missiles and will continue our path and our military power", Rouhani said in a speech at Tehran's Azadi square, where tens of thousands gathered to mark the 40th anniversary of Iran's Islamic revolution.
The marchers were also seen setting on fire American and Israeli flags, and stepping on a caricature of US President Donald Trump, who in 2018 made a decision to reimpose economic sanctions on the country.
Among those present at the march were President Hassan Rouhani and reformist members of parliament, Mohammad Reza Aref and Ali Motahari, as well as senior Muslim leaders.
