MARSDEN: Trump strays out of bounds with misguided Iran tweets

Rouhani could still pull a victory out of this week's tumult analysts say especially if it forces conservatives to tame their criticism-AFP

Nebenzia also said that the United States was abusing the UN Security Council's platform and the meeting was an attempt to use the Iranian situation to undermine the Iran nuclear deal, which the U.S. administration opposes.

But Russia and Iran complained the protests were a domestic matter and had no place being discussed at a council focused on global security.

The United States requested the meeting, which lasted for about 2 hours.

While most envoys criticized the violence and called on Iran's government to show restraint with protesters, several - including USA allies France and the United Kingdom - also used the opportunity to defend the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers, an accord increasingly seen as under threat by President Donald Trump's administration.

The U.N. charter empowers to the council to "investigate any dispute, or any situation which might lead to worldwide friction", and the USA wasn't alone in thinking the Iranian protests qualified.

Iran's Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo slammed the meeting as a "farce" and a "waste of time", and said the council should instead focus on addressing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict or the war in Yemen.

Iran's interior minister said up to 42,000 people took part during the week of protests.

TEHRAN, Iran -The Iranian parliament will hold a special session as soon as today to look into the causes of anti-government protests that have gripped the country, state-run news agencies said.

The call to support anti-government protesters is another attempt to dismantle the hard-won worldwide nuclear deal struck in 2015, Nebenzia argued.

The UN experts said they shared the concerns of Iranian civil society groups for those arrested.

Salah to be fit for City clash
Roberto Firmino is Liverpool's first-choice to start up-front, and the club signed Dominic Solanke from Chelsea last summer. The Reds are 4-1-0 in their last five overall and are 3-2-0 in their last five home games.

"We must be wary of any attempts to exploit this crisis for personal ends, which would have the diametrically opposed outcome to that which is wished", Ambassador Francois Delattre said.

"We will not be quiet".

A day after Iran and the worldwide 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.

Alma Konurbayeva, press officer for Kazakhstan, the Security Council president for January, confirmed to CBS News' Pamela Falk that Friday afternoon's meeting - called for by Haley - was on the agenda.

"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.

Shithole slur 'not the language used'

In a telephone interview from Tehran, Iranian human rights activist Nasrin Sotoudeh told Asharq Al-Awsat: "Starting 3 pm till late at night, the main streets of Tehran witnessed fueled moments".

Ms Haley had to use her veto to block a similar resolution in the Security Council that was supported by every other member.

"The official line pursued by the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia, who are our allies in many ways, is nearly one that would lead us to war", Macron told reporters, according to Reuters.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on Twitter after the session that the Security Council "rebuffed the U.S.' naked attempt to hijack its mandate".

Mass pro-government rallies have taken their place in many Iranian cities.
