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

Asked for a response to the diplomatic overtures, Haley told journalists at the UN: "We won't take any of the talks seriously if they don't do something to ban all nuclear weapons in North Korea".

She added that the Trump administration wants to advance the peace process but the Palestinians have to "show the world that they want to come to the table". Political prisoners must be freed. Neither Gaza nor Lebanon, my life only for Iran. Let them vote against us.

"It takes great bravery for the Iranian people to use the power of their voice against the government, especially when their government has a long history of murdering its own people who dare to speak the truth". Don't be afraid. Don't be afraid.

She continued: "We must not be silent".

"Those are not my words", Haley stressed.

Civil rights activist Erica Garner has passed away

This was a day after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he was open to negotiations but that his country would push ahead with "mass producing" nuclear warheads. "Those are the words of the fearless people of Iran".

Haley pushed back on the regime's claim that Iranian enemies somehow manufactured the protests. We all know that's complete nonsense.

"The demonstrations are completely spontaneous", said Haley. "This is the precise picture of a long-oppressed people rising up against their dictators", she added.

Speaking at the United Nations in New York, Haley followed up on President Donald Trump's earlier statements backing the protesters and highlighted their messages against the Iranian regime.

Haley said "nowhere is the urgency of peace, security, and freedom being more tested than in Iran", noting that "citizens are taking to the streets to protest the oppression of their own government".

At least two people have been killed and dozens arrested since protests broke out Thursday in the city of Masshad and spread to Tehran and other cities.

Haley also emphasized that withholding aid is not connected to Pakistan's vote in the U.N. General Assembly stating its opposition to the US recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, made the horror statement today in NY. The people of Iran are crying out for freedom. "All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause".

"The global community failed to do that in 2009", she added, referring to Iran's Green Revolution. We're going to make sure that they come to the table.

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.
