Washington's Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley dismissed the utility of possible direct talks between North and South Korea, warning that a harder line is necessary in light of reports that Pyongyang might be preparing for more ballistic missile tests. "The demonstrations are completely spontaneous", Haley said.
Haley declared that the protest are in "virtually in every city in Iran" and that they are calling for the "freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter". "This is the precise picture of a long oppressed people's rising up against their dictators".
She noted that "dozens have already been killed", before harkening back to the failed Green Revolution in the first year of the Obama presidency.
"We're trying to move for a peace process, but if that doesn't happen, the president is not going to continue to fund that situation", she added.
The State Department has been communicating with protesters through their Farsi-language social media accounts, posting statements of support from U.S. and world leaders, despite the Iranian government's decision to block access to some websites.
"We want to help amplify the voices of the Iranian people", Haley said before repeating some of the slogans voiced by protesters. "All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause", Nikki Haley told reporters at the UN's NY headquarters. "I don't think we should be silent".
The protests are the biggest challenge to the Iranian government's authority since mass demonstrations in 2009. In her remarks, Haley wasted no time criticizing the regime and siding with the protesters against their oppressors.

"President Rouhani told other Iranian leaders these protests are 'nothing, ' " U.S. Sen. "It is entirely connected to Pakistan's harboring of terrorists", she said.
She added that the Trump administration wants to advance the peace process but the Palestinians have to "show the world that they want to come to the table". Well, we're watching those votes.
