Bolivia Slams US 'Clumsiness' at UNSC Meeting On Iran Protests

But Russia and Iran complained tartly that the US was dragging a council focused on worldwide security into what they called a domestic matter.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley further scrutinized the Iranian government for its detestable behavior suppressing pro-democratic forces protesting the Islamist regime. "It is a powerful exhibition of fearless people who have become so fed up with their oppressive government that they are willing to risk their lives in protest".

But Rana believes Pakistan is self sufficient when it comes to major counter-terrorism operations and the security of its border with Afghanistan.

The U.S. called the meeting after giving moral support to the anti-government protesters in a week of demonstrations and counterdemonstrations.

At Friday rallies in Iran, pro-government demonstrators chanted "Death to America" and "Death to Israel". The Iranian people know the truth and we know the truth. "The Iranian regime is now on notice: The world will be watching what you do".

Seyyed Hossein Naghavi Hosseini told Mehr News about the recent UN Security Council session and the United States attempt to bring up the topic of the recent protests in Iran and said "the U.S. has always interfered in the domestic affairs of other countries".

Still, the United Nations charter empowers the council to "investigate any dispute, or any situation which might lead to worldwide friction", and the US wasn't alone in thinking the Iranian protests qualified.

Britain and France reiterated that Iran must respect the rights of protesters, but French Ambassador Francois Delattre said the "events of the past days do not constitute a threat to peace and global security".

"Why is the United States, a permanent member of the Security Council and one of the authors of the UN Charter, undermining the authority of the Security Council as the main body responsible for maintaining worldwide peace and security?"

Ahead of the meeting it was clear that the Council would not be able to even come up with a resolution or a statement on the Iranian protests because of opposition from veto-wielding permanent member Russian Federation and others. The CIA declined to comment. "Another FP (foreign policy) blunder for the Trump administration", Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted. He also has described Iran as "failing at every level" and declared it is "TIME FOR CHANGE!"

He said Iran had already violated the 2015 deal, which imposed curbs on Iran's nuclear capability in return for easing worldwide embargoes.
