"The Palestinians now have to show their will - they want to come to the table". They've come out against the leader. Independence, freedom, Iranian republic.

UNRWA works in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and the Gaza Strip.

"I think the response so far from the U.S. has been a good response", Michael Singh, a former Bush administration official who is now a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy told CNN's Wolf Blitzer Tuesday, assessing the Trump administration's approach. "We expect that the rights to peaceful assembly and expression of the Iranian people will be respected", Farhan Haq told reporters.

"Those are not my words", Haley stressed.

The offer for high-level talks next Tuesday had been discussed with the United States, the South's unification minister said, while a decision on whether to push back a massive joint military drill between South Korea and the United States until after the Winter Olympics was pending. "And the people in Iran are able to get into those sites through VPN (virtual private networks)".

Around 20 protesters have been murdered by the Iranian regime and over 450 have been arrested. "We all know that is complete nonsense", Haley said on Tuesday.

"The demonstrations are completely spontaneous", said Haley. The demonstrations began Thursday, CBS News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer reports, with a single demonstration in the eastern Iranian city of Mashhad, over economic hardship, and a dramatic jump in food prices in particular. "This is the precise picture of a long-oppressed people rising up against their dictators", she added.

Chun Yung-woo, a former South Korean national security adviser, said Seoul should have taken more time before reacting to Kim's comments. After listing numerous protesters' messages, including one telling the nation's supreme leader to "feel some shame", Haley emphasized those were the words of Iran's "brave people".

While the USA has maintained that the North should demonstrate its willingness to denuclearize before being rewarded with talks, the Moon administration is keen on dialogue without preconditions.

"Right now we're going to have conversations with the Security Council and see what we need to do to have an emergency session", Haley added about Iran.

However, the secretary of state said last month that the U.S. would be "ready to talk any time North Korea ... and we're ready to have the first meeting without precondition".

"As to President Trump and all those who love freedom, we should speak loudly in support of the Iranian people and punish their oppressors to the fullest extent possible", Graham said. All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause.

During her speech, Haley further pressed the worldwide community to support the Iranian people.

Still, a senior administration official said U.S. officials are taking inventory of ways they can be supportive of the demonstrations and come up with "creative" ideas.
