Russia says US trying to meddle in Iran

Russia says US trying to meddle in Iran

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Thursday, as quoted by TASS news agency: "We warn the United States against attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran".

"We see no role for the UN Security Council in this issue", he said, according to the agency.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was quoted as saying that "Iran's claims of external involvement in the anti-government protests are not baseless".

Russian UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia also slammed the U.S. for using the meeting to bring up the Iranian protests under a "bogus pretext".

On Thursday, the Kazakh delegation to the United Nations said the Security Council will meet on Friday at 3 pm (2000 GMT) to discuss Iran.

Council President Kairat Umarov, speaking in his national capacity as Kazakhstan's Permanent Representative, said that the developments in Iran were a domestic matter and, therefore, did not come under the Council's purview.

In a series of tweets about Iran over the past week, US President Donald Trump has hailed the week-long protests, which have aired a mixture of economic and political grievances against the "corrupt" Iranian government.

Ryabkov earlier told RIA news agency that the USA is using the demonstrations as a "pretext" to review the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - the worldwide agreement, which was also approved by Russia, China, France, the UK, Germany and the European Union.

He also criticised a call by US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley for an emergency UN Security Council meeting to discuss the violence.

Prior to the meeting, Delattre warned against the "instrumentalization of the crisis from the outside because it would only reinforce the extremes, which is precisely what we want to avoid".

He was replying to remarks by US State Department's Spokeswoman Heather Nauert, who said that the US was considering sanctions as a possibility of responding to Iranian authorities' practices against protesters.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert had suggested the USA government could impose sanctions against Iranian officials who repress peaceful protests.
