Iran's ambassador to the U.N., Gholamali Khoshroo, said the USA had abused its power as a permanent member of the Security Council. Moscow's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said that Washington had used the situation to hamper the nuclear agreement with Tehran.
Amid the unrest and anti-government rallies that began last week, Iran has also seen three days of pro-government demonstrations, with crowds in the tens of thousands.
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley argued the unrest could escalate into full-blown conflict and drew a comparison with Syria.
Haley said "the people of Iran are rising up" and "if the founding principles of this institution mean anything, we will not only hear their cry, we will finally answer it". "A prosperous, stable Iran is beneficial to all", Matthew Rycroft said on Friday, January 5, addressing the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting.

Observing that the Council's primary responsibility is maintaining global peace and security, Wu Haito of China said that it should not be the venue for discussing the human rights situation of any country. "It is a powerful exhibition of courageous people who have become so fed up with their oppressive government that they are willing to risk their lives in protest".
Still, the United Nations charter empowers the council to "investigate any dispute, or any situation which might lead to global friction", and the USA wasn't alone in thinking the Iranian protests qualified.
However, France's United Nations ambassador Francois Delattre argued that the protests don't threaten worldwide peace and security, saying: "We must be wary of any attempts to exploit this crisis for personal ends".
"Given the history of past US involvement in Iranian domestic politics, the best thing for the United States would be to continue to do little to intervene or directly support these protests", Dan Mahaffee, senior vice president and director of policy at the Center for the Study of Congress and the Presidency, told Xinhua.
As the Iranian protests continue into its eighth day, and the regime carries out its violent crackdown, the world is indeed watching. "Another FP (foreign policy) blunder for the Trump administration", he wrote. "As the Iranian people suffer, their government and the IRGC fund foreign militants, terrorist networks, and human rights abuses".
