United Nations emergency session humiliating defeat for US

United Nations emergency session humiliating defeat for US

Delattre disclosed this during a Security Council meeting called by the United States which has been criticised by Iran.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley said "Iran is now on notice: the world will be watching what you do", during an emergency meeting of UN Security Council on mass anti-government protests in Iran.

Haley said Friday that "the world should applaud their courage", and the US "stands unapologetically with those in Iran who seek freedom for themselves".

The Iranian regime is finding out the hard way that it's dealing with a much different kind of US administration.

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

He discussed the cancellation of the visit of the french foreign minister to Tehran during the previous week and said "this is unacceptable that a country has the largest number of economic agreements with Iran on paper, but adopts political and security policies that are totally against our country".

Under its charter, the United Nations empowers the council to "investigate any dispute, or any situation which might lead to global friction".

Since unprecedented protests erupted across major Iranian cities last month, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran, or the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), has sought to capitalise on such complicated developments to push Donald Trump's administration more in favor of the group's regime change agenda.

The United Kingdom's ambassadorto the United Nations has encouraged all member states to stay committed to the Iran nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), IRNA reports.

Furthermore, U.S. -allied France and the United Kingdom defended the the Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran's nuclear program, and noted Iran's compliance. He pointed out that Trump has a history of making "belligerent" comments about Iran.

The French ambassador to the United Nations, Francois Delattre, has said recent protests in Iran do not threaten global peace and security.

He said his government has "hard evidence" recent protests in Iran were very clearly directed from overseas. Trump expressed "such respect for the people of Iran as they try to take back their corrupt government" and pledged "great support from the United States". They also called on the Iranian government to take serious steps in releasing protesters and opposition members who have been arrested.

Addressing the Security Council, the Iranian Ambassador to the UN, Gholamali Khoshoroo slammed the 15-membered body to have allowed itself to be abused by the Trump Administration in holding a meeting that falls outside the scope of its mandate. Nonetheless, since Trump won the 2016 presidential election, scores of former USA officials have sought to convince him to open up discussions between his administration and the MEK.

People around the world held up Iranian flags and signs calling for the removal of the regime.
