Ayatollah Khamenei: Enemies have got united against Iran in recent days

U.S. Calls for UN Sessions on Iran

Turkey is concerned over reports of violent protests in neighbouring Iran while advising foreign powers not to intervene.

Iran's supreme leader reportedly said on Tuesday that Tehran's enemies are behind the protests.

In his letter, Iranian UN envoy Gholamali Khoshroo said the United States had a track record of intervening in Iranian affairs.

The protests began Thursday over economic issues and have since expanded to several cities. With that in mind, no wonder Iran's President Hassan Rouhani wants President Trump to keep quiet.

"In recent days, enemies of Iran used different tools, including cash, weapons, politics and intelligence apparatus to create troubles for the Islamic Republic".

The disturbances are likely to relieve Saudi Arabia and the United States who have feared the nation was positioning itself to become a regional superpower.

Ms Haley said the accusation was "ridiculous".

"These sanctions target key entities involved in Iran's ballistic missile program, which the Iranian regime prioritizes over the economic well-being of the Iranian people", US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said.

"Unprompted by any forces but those at home, they are exercising their God-given right to freedom of speech and assembly", Kasich said.

"The freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter are under attack in Iran". Dozens have already been killed.

"If the Iranian dictatorship's history is any guide, we can expect more outrageous abuses in the days to come".

President Donald Trump tried to ramp up pressure on Iran's "brutal and corrupt" regime amid a sixth day of anti-government protests Tuesday, ignoring warnings that his intervention could backfire.

Are Trump's enemies in this country so deluded as to believe that his open support would actually taint the Iranian people's desire for more democracy, a stronger economy, women's rights and free speech?

"We feel the situation in Tehran is calmer than previous days".

Where is the violence happening?

A Video clip circulated on social media, shows the last night clashes in the city.

According to official figures, 90 percent of those arrested were under 25 years old. Protest movements with far-reaching political goals, like a change in government, usually require the buy-in of political elites to succeed.

In a statement overnight, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson expressed regret for the loss of life in the protests and called on "all concerned to refrain from violence and for worldwide obligations on human rights to be observed".

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted back: "Trump has an odd way of showing 'such respect'".

From the White House podium, Sarah Sanders also took aim at the regime, accusing it of spending Iran's "wealth on spreading militancy and terror overseas, rather than ensuring prosperity at home". He has responded by blaming foreigners.

The Iranian Security Forces: In 2009, protests against the allegedly rigged results of the presidential election were crushed by Iran's security forces.

The demonstrations, which began last week, are the most serious since unrest in 2009 that followed the disputed re-election of then-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The sharp nature of some of the slogans, which have challenged the foundations of the Islamic republic, have left them mute. They show how discontented Iranians are with increasing poverty, after years of repression.

"Officials must acknowledge the deplorable situation of the country as the first step to hearing the protesters", tweeted Mohammad Taghi Karroubi, whose father Mehdi Karroubi has been under house arrest for nearly seven years for helping lead the 2009 demonstrations.
