Nikki Haley on Iran: 'We must not be silent'

Nikki Haley on Iran: 'We must not be silent'

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said Sunday Iran's government is "being tested by its own citizens" after three days of protests against the clerical regime. She called on Iran's supreme leader to feel the shame he has brought on his people, saying, "If the Iranian dictatorship's history is any guide, we can expect more outrageous abuses in the days to come".

UNRWA works in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and the Gaza Strip.

The demonstrations in Iran, which have erupted against a backdrop of rising food and gasoline prices, began Thursday in the northeastern city of Mashhad before spreading to other cities.

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".

"We look forward to candidly discussing interests from both sides face-to-face with North Korea along with the North's participation in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics", Unification Minister Cho Myong-gyon told reporters.

"The Palestinians now have to show their will - they want to come to the table".

Haley made her comments just hours after President Donald Trump also played down the need for direct talks between the two countries, which have technically been at war since 1950. "All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause", Nikki Haley told reporters at the UN's NY headquarters.

Seoul has proposed holding high-level talks on January 9 in Panmunjom Village in the demilitarized zone between North Korea and South Korea.

"The global community failed to do that in 2009", she added, referring to Iran's Green Revolution. Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its united capital, while the Palestinians see the eastern sector as the capital of their future state. "We don't think we need a Band-Aid, and we don't think we need to smile and take a picture".

"We're trying to move for a peace process, but if that doesn't happen, the president is not going to continue to fund that situation".

Trump added more fuel to the fire on Twitter by saying that the U.S. pays "hundreds of millions dollars a year" to the Palestinians and that Jerusalem, "the toughest part of the negotiation", is "off the table".
