TEHRAN: Iran said on Friday that Egyptians have achieved a "great victory," after it was announced that president Hosni Mubarak had stepped down.
"The conquest by the will of the great Egyptian nation over the resistance and persistance of officials who were dependent on the world powers is a great victory," foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told Iran's Arabic-language television.
"We hope that by continuing on this path, all the historical demands of Egyptians will materialise."
Iran on Friday marked the 32nd anniversary of the Islamic revolution which toppled the US-backed shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi. (AFP)
