Nikki Haley Applauds Iranian People's 'Tremendous Courage' In Anti-Regime Protests

Iran 'tested by its own citizens': Haley

Asked if the U.S. supports regime change in Iran, White House press spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a press briefing: "We support them giving basic rights to the people of Iran and we support them stopping being a state sponsor of terror and we want to see those actions take place".

President Donald Trump said the U.S.is "watching" events unfold, writing on Twitter that the Iranian "people have little food, big inflation and no human rights". Let go of Syria; think of us.

Indeed, the Trump administration's response to the recent protests has been in stark contrast to the Obama administration's approach in 2009, when Iranians took to the streets to decry disputed election results.

Haley pushed back on the regime's claim that Iranian enemies somehow manufactured the protests.

Still, a senior administration official said USA officials are taking inventory of ways they can be supportive of the demonstrations and come up with "creative" ideas. "If the Iranian dictatorships history is any guide, we can expect more outrageous abuses in the days to come".

"We hope that the South and North can sit face-to-face and discuss the participation of the North Korean delegation at the Pyeongchang Games as well as other issues of mutual interest for the improvement of inter-Korean ties", Cho said at a press conference. The demonstrations are completely spontaneous.

Firefighters broke windows to get residents out of the building as the fire continued to rage in the upper floors. Mayor Bill de Blasio called it the "worst fire tragedy we have seen in this city in at least a quarter century".

She also urged the worldwide community to speak out on the unfolding protests in Iran. They are virtually in every city in Iran.

She said: "This is the precise picture of a long opressed people rising up against their dictators".

Haley said that there were reports that North Korea might be preparing a new missile test launch in the coming days and threatened "even tougher measures" against the regime if he carried out the test.

Chun Yung-woo, a former South Korean national security adviser, said Seoul should have taken more time before reacting to Kim's comments.

"As to President Trump and all those who love freedom, we should speak loudly in support of the Iranian people and punish their oppressors to the fullest extent possible", Graham said. We must not be silent. "All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause", Nikki Haley told reporters at the UN's NY headquarters. "We must not make that mistake again".
