USA envoy calls for emergency United Nations session on Iran

03 January 2018

Haley singled out Iran in a New Year's message that also denounced "oppressive governments" in North Korea, Venezuela and Cuba.

On New Year's Day Donald Trump tweeted: "Iran is failing at every level despite the awful deal made with them by the Obama Administration". "We don't think we need a Band-Aid, and we don't think we need to smile and take a picture". "Those are not the words of the United States". We will die, but we'll take Iran back. The global community failed to do that in 2009.

"We wish for peace in the country to be ensured, as soon as possible, and that common sense would prevail to prevent the escalation of the incidents, and that provocative rhetoric and external interventions would be avoided", the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

"We expect far more cooperation from Pakistan in the fight against terrorism", she said. "But if it does, we must bring even more measures to bear on the North Korean regime", Nikki Haley said at the UN's NY headquarters. "Those are the words of the courageous people of Iran".

"In these first days of 2018, nowhere is the urgency of peace, security and freedom being more tested than in Iran", she said.

In response to a reporter's question about how she wanted the United Nations to handle Iran, Haley said the United States would soon have a conversation with the Security Council and possibly call an emergency session.

Why give millions to countries who would harbor our enemies?" Newsletter has been successfully subscribed. Samantha Vinograd, CNN's national security analyst spoke in favour of Trump's move. "Great start.

"We must not be silent".

The protests are the biggest challenge to the Iranian government's authority since mass demonstrations in 2009.

Haley pushed back on the regime's claim that Iranian enemies somehow manufactured the protests. They initially focused on rising costs and economic mismanagement by the regime, but quickly turned to political and social issues, including criticism of Iran's theocratic system of rule.

"But it's not enough that we speak out", he added.

She said Pakistan plays a "double game" by cooperating with the US while harboring terror groups that operate in neighboring Afghanistan. "We need to also organize an global response". He has also refused to meet with American officials regarding the peace process, including United States envoy Jason Greenblatt and White House plans for a new peace effort have reportedly been put on hold.
