France's ambassador to the United Nations told the Security Council the protests in Iran did not require a meeting before the global body.
In contrast to the US response to the Iran protests in 2009, where the Obama administration took a relatively hands-off approach, President Trump has promised "great support" for the demonstrators, while the State Department has hinted at sanctions for officials who abuse protesters and said that it will use Facebook and Twitter to communicate directly with activists.
Last Thursday, Iranians took to the streets in the northeastern cities of Mashhad and Kashmar to protest rising inflation and perceived government mismanagement, according to local media reports.

The UN Security Council went into closed-door talks on Friday on the deadly protests in Iran with Russian Federation and the United States at odds over whether the top UN body should discuss the demonstrations.
It also pointed to a U.S. State Department official's Tuesday statement that the United States was communicating with anti-government protesters through its Facebook and Twitter pages in Farsi, and was encouraging them to demonstrate.
"It will be telling if any country tries to deny the Security Council from even having this discussion, just as the Iranian regime tries to deny its own people the ability to have their voices heard".

"Human rights are not the gift of governments, they are the inalienable rights of the people themselves", Haley said. Now pro-government protests are taking their place, and on Thursday, regime supporters marched through parts of the country for a second day in a row.
More than 20 people were killed in the demonstrations, including at least one police officer, while more than a thousand others were detained by authorities.
He added his government has "hard evidence" the recent protests in Iran were "very clearly directed from abroad". Trump expressed "such respect for the people of Iran as they try to take back their corrupt government" and pledged "great support from the United States".
He criticized European nations and the United Nations for failing to "forcefully speak out" on Iran.
