US calls for emergency meeting on Iran

The US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley on Tuesday called on the UN Security Council to hold an emergency meeting on Iran.

Haley told reporters that Iran’s protests are the picture of a long-oppressed people rising up against their dictators. She rejected claims that the protests were sponsored by outside forces and said the US will help spread the Iranian people’s voices.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres expressed his regret at the rising death toll in the anti-government protests in Iran. He called on Tehran to respect the rights of peaceful protesters.

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused Iran’s enemies of intervening in Iran’s protests, adding that they have taken advantage of every opportunity to cause trouble for Iran.
