UN: «Nothing will stop America from standing in solidarity» with Iranian protesters, says Haley

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley claimed that Iranian protesters are not «puppets» and promised American support to them, speaking at the UNSC emergency meeting in New York City on Friday. «We will not be quiet, no dishonest attempt to call the protesters puppets of foreign powers will change that,» claimed Haley, adding that «nothing will stop Americans from standing in... Еще solidarity with them». The top diplomat went on saying, that the message of Iranian anti-government protesters is undeniable, 'Stop the support for terrorism. Stop giving billions of our money to killers and dictators. Stop taking our wealth and spending it on foreign fighters and proxy wars. Think of us». She also noted that the «UN reports that the Iranian regime spends at least 6 billion every year propping up the murders' Assad regime in Syria, the people of Iran know this.» «Iranian regime spends millions on militias in Iraq each year. It gives millions more each year to the Houthi rebels in Yemen,» claimed Nikki Haley. The UN Security Council is holding an emergency meeting discussing protests in Iran, at the US request. Moscow has argued that the US call for the meeting interferes with Iran's sovereignty. At least 21 people have died in anti-government protests since Thursday with rallies against rising food prices, unemployment and alleged corruption. President Hassan Rouhani acknowledged the public's anger over Iran's flagging economy but vowed to crackdown on lawbreakers. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has also blamed the recent unrest on meddling by «enemies of Iran.» Mandatory Credit: United Nations
