Iran slams US for instigating riots, meddling in Iran’s domestic affairs

Iran has strongly censured the United States for it attempts to interfere in the country’s domestic affairs and instigate riots in the aftermath of a young woman’s death after she was taken to a police station.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said in a Sunday meeting with his Iraqi counterpart, Fuad Hussein, that Washington is taking advantage of the pure sentiments of the Iranian nation to destabilize the country, get people killed by its own mercenaries, and then blame the Iranian government.

The two top diplomats met on the sidelines of the 77th annual session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, where they discussed, among other things, the latest wave of protests in Iran.

Amir-Abdollahian pointed out that peaceful protests are among the basic rights of every nation, but cautioned that some American officials are making meddlesome remarks regarding the protests.

He added that Washington’s approach toward the riots is at odds with frequent messages by the White House stressing the need to reach an agreement with Tehran as a prelude to stability and security across the region.

Protests have broken out in several Iranian cities over the September 16 death of Mahsa Amini, a young Iranian woman who died at a hospital a few days after collapsing at a police station in the capital Tehran, where she and a group of others were receiving educational training on dress code rules.

Despite Iranian officials’ clarification on the circumstances surrounding Amini’s death, violent street protests have led to attacks on security officers and acts of vandalism against public property and sanctities.
