Deep 'mistrust' persists between US, Iran, State Dept says
Relations between Iran and the United States continue to be marked by deep "mistrust," a State Department spokesperson said Monday, as thousands in Tehran took part in anti-American protests.


The demonstrations marked the day in 1979 that Islamist students stormed the US embassy compound in the Iranian capital, holding 52 American diplomats hostage for 444 days. (AFP)
