UNITED NATIONS: The UN Security Council went into closed-door talks on Friday ahead of a meeting called by the United States on the wave of deadly protests in Iran.
Russia requested the consultations and was expected to call for a procedural vote to try to block the open meeting on the anti-government demonstrations.
Earlier, Iran´s foreign minister wrote on his Twitter account that the United Nations Security Council meeting that centered on Iran´s anti-government protests was another foreign policy blunder of US President Donald Trump´s administration.
“The UNSC rebuffed the US´ naked attempt to hijack its mandate . Another FP (foreign policy) blunder for the Trump administration,” Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted.
