"We fully support the courageous Iranian people who are protesting these heinous actions".
USA lawmakers on Tuesday backed the resolution nearly unanimously, by a vote of 415 to two. The US House of Representatives adopted a resolution expressing support for the anti-governmental protests in Iran, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports. The resolution also mentions that more than 1,000 Iranians have been arrested and nearly two dozen killed in connection with the protests that began on December 28, 2017.
"U.S. officials should know that, firstly, they have missed their target: and if they target Iran again, they will fail". "Despite receiving an influx of billions of dollars and sanctions relief from the nuclear deal struck with the Obama Administration, the citizens of Iran have seen no improvement in the quality of their daily lives". While Khamenei has acknowledged legitimate demonstrations against economic conditions, he criticized Trump's Twitter support for those Iranians "trying to take back their corrupt government" and appeared to enter the debate over recent, controversial allegations about the mental health of the president, who insisted Saturday he was "a very stable genius". We must be adamant and clear that the Iranian regime's serious human rights abuses, corruption and support of terrorist groups like Hezbollah absolutely will not be tolerated.
