Thousands of Iranian government opponents gathered outside of Paris on Saturday (July 1) for the annual "Grand Gathering of Iranians", organized by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), to condemn the country's regime and interference in the Middle East.

Among those present were several international delegations and representatives, such as former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Newt Gingrich and John Bolton from the United States.

Iran reached a deal with the United States - under former President Barack Obama - and other major nations in 2015 to restricts Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of international economic sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

However, Iran is still subject to an arms embargo and other restrictions, which are not technically part of the nuclear agreement.

US President Donald Trump has criticized the deal calling it a "disaster" and the "worst deal ever negotiated and in April ordered that it be reviewed, which could take months.
