The world will be watching what you do, US warns Iran

Naghavi said that the U.S. marshalled all its forces and capacities to turn the conditions in Iran into a crisis and asserted "Ambassador Haley's call for emergency United Nations session on Iran protests was another interventionist measure". The Iranian people know the truth and we know the truth.

U.S. President Donald Trump is cheering on demonstrators in Iran for standing up to their government over the hard economic times.

Russia's Permanent Representative Vassily Nebenzia said that if the Council followed the reasoning behind convening the the meeting over domestic protests in Iran, it should have met after the protests in the United States that followed the killing of an African-American teenager in Ferguson by a white police officer in 2014.

Heated debate took place on the floor of the Security Council at the United Nations headquarters in NY after its 15 members were gathered at the request of the USA to discuss the current situation in Iran. "A prosperous, stable Iran is beneficial to all", Matthew Rycroft said on Friday, January 5, addressing the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting.

She called on all of her other colleagues in the Security Council to join her in amplifying the message of the Iranian people.

"The Iranian people are rising up in over 79 locations throughout the country", Haley said.

Many observers are asking why protesters chose this period to demonstrate.

Observing that the Council's primary responsibility is maintaining worldwide peace and security, Wu Haito of China said that it should not be the venue for discussing the human rights situation of any country.

Meanwhile, Lalu's son and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said that the trial court's decision will be challenged in the high court . Lalu was found guilty in another fodder scam case in 2013 after which he had to resign from his Lok Sabha seat.

France's ambassador to the United Nations told the meeting that recent protests in Iran do not threaten global peace and security.

"We must be wary of any attempt to exploit this crisis for personal ends", France's Permanent Representative Francois Delattre said, adding that the Council must commit to upholding the nuclear agreement.

Jeremy Corbyn has been criticised for remaining silent about protests in Iran against the government, while his Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry claimed it was unclear who has "the white hats".

Earlier in the week, the USA government announced it was suspending security assistance to the country.

"And I call on the Government of Iran to stop censoring the voice of the people and to restore the access to the internet".

Tens of thousands gathered across Iran yesterday in a show of strength for the regime after days of deadly unrest, with state television showing crowds marching through several cities.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif wrote on his Twitter account that the meeting was "another foreign policy blunder for the Trump administration".

He said the administration of President Donald Trump, in "numerous absurd tweets, had incited Iranians to engage in disruptive acts" which violated worldwide law.
