A U.N. Security Council emergency meeting on the protests roiling Iran is putting Tehran on notice that "the world will be watching" what it does, the USA ambassador said Friday.
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said this week that Washington was seeking emergency sessions on Iran at the United Nations in NY and at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.
"[The U.S.] continues to pursue a policy of open and implicit interference in the internal affairs of other states - doing it unabashedly, openly, under the slogan of caring for democracy and human rights, directly infringing on the sovereignty of other states", Ryabkov said, according to the Associated Press.
Iran has witnessed rallies in the past few days over price hikes and economic woes in some cities, but some suspicious rioters, who have been accused of being foreign-backed, have taken the protest so far by damaging public property and attacking police forces.
Iran on Wednesday angrily accused the U.S.at the United Nations of meddling in its domestic affairs.
For a new agenda item to be discussed at the Security Council, at least nine of the 15 council members must support holding the meeting.
But Haley threw down the gauntlet to countries who would try and oppose the meeting.
"It will be telling if any country tries to deny the Security Council from even having this discussion, just as the Iranian regime tries to deny its own people the ability to have their voices heard".
France's ambassador to the UN said the protests do not threaten global peace and security, in what may be an implicit criticism of the United States. "They do so shamelessly", Ryabkov was quoted as saying by Interfax news agency.
"The Security Council must hold them accountable and set up a tribunal to prosecute them", she said.
