Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley praised Iranian protesters today, adding that the United States is seeking an emergency Security Council meeting in New York and the Human Rights Council in Geneva regarding Iran.
"The people of Iran are crying out for freedom," Haley said. "All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause."
"This is the precise picture of a long oppressed people rising up against their dictators. The international community has a role to play on this. The freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter are under attack in Iran,"
"If the Iranian dictatorships history is any guide, we can expect more outrageous abuses in the days to come. The UN must speak out."
