USA abusing UN Security Council to interfere in Iran's internal affairs - Russian Federation

USA abusing UN Security Council to interfere in Iran's internal affairs - Russian Federation USA abusing UN Security Council to interfere in Iran's internal affairs - Russian Federation

Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the demonstrations are a domestic matter, not an global security issue warranting the attention of the UN's most powerful body.

Khoshroo also said the US had abused its power as a permanent member of the Security Council by calling for a meeting to discuss the protests.

We stand with the proud people of Iran because it is right, and because the regime in Tehran threatens the peace and security of the world.

The president's tweets haven't called for violence or disruptive acts, but he has commended the protests, expressing "such respect for the people of Iran as they try to take back their corrupt government" and pledging "great support from the United States".

Iranian UN Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo echoed Nebenzia, saying "one can only gasp at the hypocrisy" of the USA accusing Iran of suppressing protests.

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) remained divided to discuss the situation in Iran and most UNSC members criticized the United States for exploiting the issue.

The protests do not threaten worldwide peace and security, French Ambassador to the UN Francois Delattre said, in what might be an implicit criticism of the US.

Almost 20 people have died during the anti-government protests that began on December 28 in Mashhad, Iran's second-largest city, over the condition of the economy and food inflation.

"According to reports carried by official Iranian media, more than 20 Iranians, including a teenage boy and a policeman, have died during the protests", said Zerihoun, adding that Iran's Ministry of the Interior stated that over 1,000 protesters have been detained, although many may have since been released.

Man confesses to 1993 murder in emotional TV interview
Hawkins reached out to KRCR 7 ABC news to confess to his crime on camera before turning himself into the police station next door. Later that day, the auto was found outside a Costco in Redding, with blood on the car's exterior and interior, police said.

Iran has also seen three days of large pro-government demonstrations.

The United States, which has voiced support for the anti-government protests that have swept Iran over the past week, called for the emergency session.

Some 4,000 people - including former lawmakers, journalists, students and foreign nationals - were arrested in connection with those protests.

"The real reason for convening today's meaning is not an attempt to protect human rights or promote the interests of the Iranian people, but rather a veiled attempt to seize the current moment to continue to undermine the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)".

He could opt to reimpose the sanctions and risk collapse of the accord, a move that Friday's United Nations session showed would leave the US isolated. "We will not be quiet", Haley said, dismissing any attempts to paint the protesters as "puppets of foreign powers". The government has suspended access to the messaging app Telegram, which was being used to publicize the protests.

Analysts say there is a chance he may use the latest unrest as a pretext to reimpose sanctions.

Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom came under fire this week after she spoke with the national media about Sweden's "great concern and dismay" about the events in Iran, but expressed skepticism about the need for a meeting at the United Nations.

Mr Trump has also repeatedly threatened to decertify the landmark global deal to curb Iran's nuclear programme, a move which could cause the 2015 accord to unravel and that has been bitterly criticised by other signatories, including France. State television showed rallies in cities including Amol, Semnan and Shadegan waving Iranian flags and chanting "Death to America", "Death to Israel" and "Death to Britain".

Meanwhile, thousands of government supporters staged rallies for a fifth day in a backlash against the biggest anti-government protests since widespread unrest in 2009 over alleged election fraud.
