The UN Security Council met on the situation in Iran
Following recent unrests in certain parts of Iran, US Representative to the UN Nikki Haley in a speech to reporters at the UN headquarters on January 2 accused Iran of violating human rights and freedom of expression and said Washington was after sessions on Iran by UNSC in NY and UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva.
A UN Security Council emergency meeting on the protests roiling Iran showed Tehran "the world will be watching" its actions, the USA ambassador said Friday. Up to 42,000 people took part in the protests, according to Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli, who has said the clerically overseen government exhibited "tolerance" toward the demonstrations.
But Rana believes Pakistan is self sufficient when it comes to major counter-terrorism operations and the security of its border with Afghanistan. The Iranian people know the truth and we know the truth.
Haley said Friday that "the world should applaud their courage", and the USA "stands unapologetically with those in Iran who seek freedom for themselves".
State television showed rallies in cities including Amol, Semnan and Shadegan waving Iranian flags and chanting "Death to America", "Death to Israel" and "Death to Britain".
A United Nations Security Council meeting on Friday to discuss the protests turned into criticism of the United States for requesting to meet on what some member states said was an internal issue for Iran.

But Iran's Ambassador to the UN Gholamali Khoshroo criticized the council for taking up a matter his country considers "purely domestic", and called it bullying by the United States.
Under its charter, the United Nations empowers the council to "investigate any dispute, or any situation which might lead to worldwide friction".
While Russia believes the UN Security Council has no business getting involved, British ambassador Matthew Rycroft said it was "right and proper - indeed, our responsibility to assess whether a situation like this could become a threat to global peace and security".
Britain and France reiterated that Iran must respect the rights of protesters, but French Ambassador Francois Delattre said the "events of the past days do not constitute a threat to peace and global security".
The Trump administration has denied having any hand in the demonstrations, saying they arose completely spontaneously.
China also described the meeting as meddling in Iran's affairs.
He said Iran had already violated the 2015 deal, which imposed curbs on Iran's nuclear capability in return for easing global embargoes.
