Obama Betrayed Iranian People; Trump Stands with Them


The United Nations Security Council was to hold an emergency meeting Friday afternoon on what U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley has described as the "troubling and risky situation in Iran".

Iranian Ambassador to the UN Gholamali Khoshroo asserted that the administration of US President Donald Trump - in the form of its current and widely-criticized ambassador Nikki Haley - was abusing its position as a permanent UNSC member in demanding the emergency meeting.

Russian Federation promptly accused Washington of "abusing" its position within the Security Council by using the forum to discuss the matter, calling it "completely inappropriate" for the council to take up Iran's demonstrations.

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, argued the demonstrations were a human rights issue that could spiral into an worldwide problem.

"Every UN member state is sovereign, but member states can not use sovereignty as a shield when they categorically deny people human rights and fundamental freedoms", she added.

Haley said that "in the end, the Iranian people will determine their own destiny", and she reiterated U.S. support for the protesters.

"It would be a misrepresentation (of events) and also an insult to Iranian people to say they only had economic demands", Rouhani was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

"However, let Iran deal with its own problems, especially since this is precisely what's taking place", Russia's envoy to the UN Vassily Nebenzia said.

A total of 21 people have died and hundreds have been arrested since December 28 as protests over economic woes turned against the Iranian regime as a whole, with attacks on government buildings and police stations. The United States has done little to discourage that claim - a senior State Department official revealed it's been in touch with protesters inside Iran via social media.

In the wake of the demonstrations and the regime's brutal attempts to suppress them, President Barack Obama repeatedly failed to express America's solidarity with the Iranian protesters.

But will the new USA leader do anything to support the protesters?

"The names and whereabouts of all persons detained in connection with these protests ought to be made public and they should be allowed immediate access to their families and legal counsel".

The four independent experts appointed by the U.N. Human Rights Council said in a joint statement issued on Friday in Geneva that authorities should "exercise restraint". She said the worldwide community must also "do more" to prevent Iran from silencing protesters' messages, particularly by blocking some social media platforms.

"The situation is not an issue that belongs on the agenda of the Security Council", the representative from Bolivia said, saying it will "run the risk of the Security Council becoming a political tool exploited for each member's ends". She added that it would be "telling if any country tries to deny the Security Council from even having this discussion".

A day after Iran and the global powers announced the deal, former President Barack Obama conceded Iran would likely use sanctions relief funds linked to the pact to fund its terrorist proxies, namely the Lebanon-based Hezbollah, which is known to operate in the United States' backyard, Latin America.

In recent days, government supporters have held several mass rallies across the country to protest the unrest.
