Trump's Support for the Iranian Protests

Trump's Support for the Iranian Protests Trump's Support for the Iranian Protests

Khoshroo, echoing Iran's official stance, said his government had "hard evidence" that recent protests in Iran were "very clearly directed from abroad".

Saturday's show of support came a day after Iran's foreign minister said a United Nations Security Council meeting called by the United States to discuss the protests had proved a "blunder" by the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert asserted that sanctions are only one part of Washington's "tool kit" and that "there are a range of options that we have going forward".

"The Iranian people are rising up in over 79 locations throughout the country", Haley said. The Iranian regime is now on notice.

"We will not be quiet", she told the meeting.

The United Kingdom's ambassadorto the United Nations has encouraged all member states to stay committed to the Iran nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), IRNA reports.

The U.S. Treasury Department announced the sanctions on Thursday in retaliation for the government's ongoing deadly crackdown against protesters, which has killed at least twelve Iranian citizens. In June, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson affirmed at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that Washington's Iran policy is based on supporting "elements inside of Iran" in pursuit of a "peaceful transition of that government".

Addressing the Security Council, the Iranian Ambassador to the UN, Gholamali Khoshoroo slammed the 15-membered body to have allowed itself to be abused by the Trump Administration in holding a meeting that falls outside the scope of its mandate. Iran's ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo slammed the US government's attempts to intervene in the domestic affairs of the Islamic Republic, Tasnim news agency reported Thursday.

But Russia's ambassador, Vassily Nebenzia, said the USA was "abusing the platform of the Security Council". In Iraq and Syria, where various actors are seeking to make themselves shareholders in the future of both countries, Iran has extensive clout that can be directed against Washington in the aftermath of the Islamic State's defeats past year.

The French diplomat was blunt when he said that the violations of the demonstrators' rights "do not constitute per se a threat to worldwide peace and security".

Under its charter, the United Nations empowers the council to "investigate any dispute, or any situation which might lead to worldwide friction".

The widespread demonstrations were initially triggered by the worsening economic situation in the country but soon touched upon other issues relevant to the level of democracy and respect for human rights in the country. "Let Iran deal with its own problems".

He said Iran had already violated the 2015 deal, which imposed curbs on Iran's nuclear capability in return for easing global embargoes.

"However worrying the recent events were, they did not constitute a threat to worldwide peace and security".
