Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 2 /Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
Iran promises to give some 10 kg of gold to any historian that can find a country with a more criminal regime than the U.S., Commander of the Basij paramilitary force of Iran Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said, ISNA reported.
Naqdi said the historians are given time till 2021, to do proper research if necessary.
He made the remarks during the held rallies in Tehran, that marked the 33rd anniversary of the 1979 takeover of the US Embassy in Tehran.
On November 4, 1979, a group of revolutionary Iranian university students took over the US Embassy which they believed had turned into a den of espionage which aimed to overthrow the nascent Islamic Republic establishment.
As a result of the siege, 53 diplomatic employees of the U.S. embassy were held as hostages for 444 days.
"This evil regime is the only regime that has its hands tainted with blood of the world's five continents," Naqdi noted, referring to the United States.
He said that Iran will not compromise with the United States, adding that the Western state is also responsible for crimes committed in Myanmar, Iraq, Afghanistan and Bahrain.
The Iranian nation will not compromise with the United States as the American officials do not change their policies towards other nations in the world, said the commander of Basij forces which are under the commandment of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
