Iran criticises US 'blunder' over UN meeting

The world is closely watching Iran's response to protests in the country that left at least 21 people dead, the United States said Friday after it called an emergency meeting at the UN security council to show solidarity with the demonstrators.

The United States called on the council to demand Iran improve its human rights situation.

And the Deputy Chinese Ambassador Liu Jieyi pointed to the United Nations charter: "The Iranian situation does not pose any threat on worldwide peace or security, nor is it on the agenda of the Security Council".

But Russia's envoy shot back that if the United States view holds, the council should have also discussed the 2014 unrest in the USA suburb of Ferguson, Missouri, over the police shooting of a black teenager or the U.S. crackdown on the Occupy Wall Street movement.

"It is right and proper - indeed, our responsibility.to assess whether a situation like this could become a threat to worldwide peace and security", British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said before the meeting.

It has largely tapered off. Clashes with security forces have resulted in up to 22 protesters' deaths and hundreds of arrests.

The United Nations Security Council rebuffed the United States to use the protests in Iran as an excuse to undermine the nuclear deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Tens of thousands of government supporters rallied across Iran on, swearing allegiance to the clerical establishment and accusing arch enemy the United States of instigating the largest anti-government protests in almost a decade.

US President Donald Trump's administration was under fire during a meeting of the UN Security Council on Friday.

Trump Cancels Trip to London
In November, Ms May directly criticised Mr Trump's decision to retweet material from the far-right extremist group, Britain First. But leading Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage, who visited Trump following his election, said the decision was "disappointing".

"Some countries tried to misuse the recent incidents", Zarif said, without naming them.

The Friday meeting centered on Iran after the U.S. requested an emergency session amid protests in the country.

"We are very disturbed by the way the authorities have responded to the protests", the four Special Rapporteurs said in their statement, released by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

There is a long history of USA bullying at the UN, and the case of the Iranian protest was a preposterous example of interference in the purely internal affairs of a nation.

She added: "Freedom and human dignity can not be separated from peace and security". "It is a powerful exhibition of courageous people who have become so fed up with their oppressive government that they are willing to risk their lives in protest".

Not all council members see a need to weigh in.

But Khamenei and his hardline allies have criticised Iranian President Hassan Rouhani for failing to revive the economy after most sanctions on Iran were lifted in 2016 under a deal reached between Tehran and major powers aimed at curbing the country's nuclear programme.

For a third straight day, there were large pro-government rallies, this time in 40 locations around Tehran province and several cities including Tabriz and Kerman after Friday prayers, as authorities declared the unrest over.

The last administration's refusal to act ultimately emboldened Iran's tyrannical rulers to crack down on the dissent. At that point, the elements outside of Iran including instigators based in the United States and Europe began to visible.
