Tens of thousands of demonstrators, supporting Iran's government, have been taking place in several of the country's main cities following days of antiregime protests which left at least 22 people dead.

Meanwhile Iran has accused the United States of interfering in its domestic affairs after President Trump offered to support anti-government protesters.

Some observers gave their views on the antiregime demonstration.

Tehran resident, Akbari said: "I went to the protests to see things with my own eyes. I was there. The protesters were there for reasons other than the economy. None of them said  'I have a child at the hospital' or 'I need medicine.' It was all about something else."

Nasser Nazari, who also lives in Tehran gave his views.

"The recent protests were because of high prices. Things shouldn't be so expensive that people have to cry out," he said. 

"It was because officials didn't care about people. I have objections too, but not through street protests. Through talking. God willing this will be resolved. We ask Mr Rouhani to fulfill all the promises he made."

President Trump said Iran was the "biggest sponsor of terrorism in the world."

The EU has expressed concern that Donald Trump is trying to apply pressure on it to abandon support for the nuclear deal agreed by Barack Obama in 2015.
