The meeting was a defeat for US diplomatic interests as countries in the Security Council defended the principles of sovereignty and non-interventionism.

At the forefront of resistance to the Islamist mullahs' bloody crackdown on pro-democratic protesters are U.S. Ambassador to U.N. Nikki Haley and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

Russia, a close ally of Iran's, agreed.

"Why is the United States, a permanent member of the Security Council and one of the authors of the UN Charter, undermining the authority of the Security Council as the main body responsible for maintaining global peace and security?"

Under its charter, the United Nations empowers the council to "investigate any dispute, or any situation which might lead to global friction".

"It is right and proper - indeed, our responsibility ... to assess whether a situation like this could become a threat to global peace and security", British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said before the meeting. Large pro-government rallies have been held in response, and officials have blamed the anti-government unrest on foreign meddling.

"We will not be quiet", she told the meeting.

This could all change if the mass demonstration in the country continues and the Iranian authorities resort to clearly systematic, oppressive and brutal methods to deal with them. "We must be wary of any attempts to exploit this crisis for personal ends, which would have the diametrically opposed outcome to that which is wished". When is the US going to learn to let the world live in peace.

Khoshroo said Iran has "hard evidence" that violence is being directed from overseas, and went on to describe recent instances in which foreign citizens have incited violence in Iran.

Trump's administration has denied having any hand in the demonstrations, saying they arose completely spontaneously. The CIA declined to comment. Moreover, with President Trump imposing a travel ban on Iranians and calling Iran a terrorist nation, his statement about respecting the right of Iranians "to express themselves" is just some pretty words.

The Security Council "rebuffed the U.S.' naked attempt to hijack its mandate", Mr. Zarif wrote on Twitter.

"Rolling Protests in Iran Lay Bare Power Struggle" (front page, January 3) reports on protesters venting their frustrations with a political elite they say has hijacked the economy to serve its own interests. Due to the Trump administration, it's not only watching, it's also acting.
