Суббота, 13 Янв, 2018

"The world will be watching what you do", Haley told a meeting of the United Nations Security Council.

Russia claimed that the United States was abusing its power as a permanent member and intended to use the protests to undermine the Iranian nuclear deal signed in 2015. He added that there would be more releases from detention, except for the main instigators of the riots who will be "dealt with seriously". "We are in the process of trying to deliver on the promise he made to fix it".

French Ambassador Francois Delattre said the international community must be vigilant and "remain watchful" but at the same time "we must be wary of any attempt to exploit this crisis for personal ends".

The Security Council "rebuffed the US' naked attempt to hijack its mandate", Zarif wrote on Twitter.

Last time Trump had to decide on the deal, he didn't recertify it.

The greater long-term threat of the protests is to the Islamic regime. Supporters of the Green Movement insisted to me again and again that they wanted reforms, not a sharp shock to the existing order, fearing the consequences of the latter.

At least 21 were killed and hundreds arrested in the biggest demonstrations in the country since 2009.

The demonstrations that began in the northern city of Mashhad - Iran's second largest city and an important religious site - on December 28 appear to have been largely driven by anger over economic grievances and corruption within official circles.

The Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI), part of a global project collecting evidence of Internet censorship, said on January 5 that its data confirm the government has blocked Telegram, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger during the protests. One Canadian Liberal MP seemed nearly to commit light sabotage of the resistance when he referred to the theocratic regime as an "elected government".

Despite the surge of demonstrations across the country, Interior Ministry spokesperson Salman Samani is still refusing to answer journalists' questions on the situation.

The Iranian is an online magazine for those who care deeply about all things Iranian: identity, culture, music, history, politics, literature, and one another.

The European Union is urging all those concerned, who are currently in Iran to refrain from any violence. The demonstrations were triggered by a rise in food prices and soaring unemployment. "Stop the support for terrorism".

"There's really no reason for us to not waive the nuclear sanctions now", said Michael Eisenstadt, director of the Military and Security Studies program at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the US move to call the meeting was a "bogus pretext" to include "purely political issues" surrounding Iran on the Security Council agenda.

The United Nations Security Council held a meeting on Iran Friday that mostly featured criticism of the United States.

Iran's Revolutionary Guard says the security forces have ended the wave of unrest linked to anti-government protests that erupted last month. "Peaceful demonstration and freedom of expression are fundamental rights that apply to every country, and Iran is no exception.".
