"The Iranian regime's contempt for the rights of its people has been widely documented for many years", said Haley, adding that the United States stood "unapologetically with those in Iran who seek freedom for themselves, prosperity for their families, and dignity for their nation".
The US damage inflicted on Iran by US will gain a response, said the Leader during a meeting with a group of people from the city of Qom.
Following the unrest, people held several demonstrations across the country to condemn the violent riots and acts of vandalism, and voice support for the Islamic Republic's Establishment.
"Once again, the nation tells the US, Britain, and those who seek to overthrow the Islamic Republic of Iran from overseas that 'you've failed, and you will fail in the future, too.'" Reuters cited Khamenei as saying.
The U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, said Iran is "on notice", after listing what she referred to as slogans chanted by Iranian protesters. The Shah was, in turn, overthrown in the 1979 Iranian Revolution.
According to evidence of intelligence, there has been a triangle pattern activating these events. He claimed the MKO had been "hired as minions for this plot".
The House resolution also called on U.S. President Donald Trump's administration to issue new sanctions punishing human rights violators in Iran.
"It is unfortunate that despite the resistance on the part of some of its members, this council has allowed itself to be abused by the current USA administration in holding a meeting on an issue that falls outside the scope of its mandate", he said.
"The economic conditions in Iran are not good.That's what caused people to take to the streets", Pompeo said. Well, if we were so terrified by you, how did we kick you out of Iran in late 70s and send you packing, out of the entire region, in the 2010s?
Khamenei continued, "US officials have started talking nonsense: The US president says the Iranian establishment is frightened by its people. No".
