Nikki Haley: We must not let Syrian horrors to happen in Iran

Nikki Haley: We must not let Syrian horrors to happen in Iran

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley requested an emergency meeting on Iran at the Security Council.

Haley said earlier this week that the U.S. wanted emergency meetings in NY and in Geneva at the Human Rights Council to discuss the Iran situation.

"Iran's domestic affairs have nothing to do with the United Nations Security Council's role", he said. Russian Federation said Washington was overstepping into Iran's domestic affairs.

Since the demonstrations began six days back, at least 21 people have been killed - including a police officer - while hundreds more have reportedly been detained.

Ryabkov said earlier on Thursday that the United States should not interfere in Iran's domestic affairs, and that Moscow remained committed to the 2015 worldwide deal to curtail Tehran's nuclear program, which US President Donald Trump has challenged.

In contrast to the US response to the Iran protests in 2009, where the Obama administration took a relatively hands-off approach, President Trump has promised "great support" for the demonstrators, while the State Department has hinted at sanctions for officials who abuse protesters and said that it will use Facebook and Twitter to communicate directly with activists.

However, Jack Wilshere opened scoring in the second half, slotting the ball past Thibaut Courtois at the near post. After the draw against Chelsea, Wenger said: "When opinions always go the same way it's coincidence".

"The Iranian regime is finally on notice: The world will be watching what you do", she said. China, Bolivia and new member Equatorial Guinea are the countries most likely to have an objection, as they claim the protest is an internal matter for Iran and not a matter that involves worldwide peace and security.

Differences in opinion between the United States and Europe over how to address the situation in Iran may also manifest themselves during the emergency meeting on Friday.

Discussing the domestic situation of Iran at the council "does not help resolve the domestic issue of Iran", said China's Deputy UN Ambassador Wu Haitao.

New vehicle sales to private motorists were down 6.8%, fleet down 4.5% and business down 7.8%. Its figures measured the first annual increase since 1997.

Trump's administration has denied having any hand in the demonstrations, saying they arose completely spontaneously.

The president's tweets have not called for violence or disruptive acts, but he has commended them.

The Trump administration has been strongly supportive of the protesters and condemned the Iranian government. He also has described Iran as "failing at every level" and declared it is "TIME FOR CHANGE!" The Iranian people know the truth.
