  • US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley singles out Iran in New Year’s message

The US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley on Tuesday praised the courage of Iranian demonstrators and said protests across the Islamic Republic were spontaneous and not driven by outside forces.

· "Let go of Syria, think of us!" "This is the precise picture of a long oppressed peoples rising up against their dictators".

"The civilized world must remain united and vigilant against the rogue state's development of a nuclear arsenal. We must not make that mistake again".

Chun Yung-woo, a former South Korean national security adviser, said Seoul should have taken more time before reacting to Kim's comments.

"We wish for peace in the country to be ensured, as soon as possible, and that common sense would prevail to prevent the escalation of the incidents, and that provocative rhetoric and external interventions would be avoided", the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

"The government of Iran is actively attempting to stop social media and other forms of communication that allow their citizens' voices to be heard", Haley said. "And the people in Iran are able to get into those sites through VPN (virtual private networks)".

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley indicated on Tuesday that continued Palestinian refusal to meet with American envoys and return to peace talks with Israel could cost them a loss of aid, the Times of Israel reported.

The head of Iran's Tehran Revolutionary Court further warned that protesters who rallied against the government after the second day of demonstrations may face "serious penalties". The freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter are under attack in Iran.

Haley said that there were reports that North Korea might be preparing a new missile test launch in the coming days and threatened "even tougher measures" against the regime if he carried out the test.

Haley pushed back on the regime's claim that Iranian enemies somehow manufactured the protests.

South Carolina's senior senator also criticized the response of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to the protests. "We need to also organize an global response". "We don't care", Trump told reporters at the White House.

She said Pakistan plays a "double game" by cooperating with the USA while harboring terror groups that operate in neighboring Afghanistan.
