Ceremonies have been held across the world to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the glorious victory of Iran’s Islamic Revolution.

Celebrations took place in the Vatican, as well as the capitals of Russia, China, Japan, South Korea, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Spain, Hungary, Bangladesh, Denmark and Ireland.
