Iranian government condemns Trump’s remarks on protests



On Saturday, an Iranian government spokesman condemned President Donald J. Trump’s remarks regarding U.S. support for Iranian protesters.

“The Iranian people pay no heed to the opportunistic claims of American officials, ‎particularly President Trump,” said Bahram Qassemi, ‎Foreign Ministry Spokesman for the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Qassemi called Trump’s statements cheap, invalid, and useless.

“The great nation of Iran for sure has closely watched the active participation of Mr. Trump in violating the ‎human rights of Palestinian, Yemeni, and Bahraini people,” he said.‎

Trump has tweeted several times about Iranian citizens taking to the streets in protest against the government:

The protests are the largest anti-government movement in Iran since 2009. The protestors are pushing back against poor economic conditions, price surges, and government sponsored terrorism in the Middle East.

Trump remarked about the economic situation in Iran too, noting that America is on the look-out for human rights violations:

Seven Iranian citizens were killed in clashes with the government during the 2009 protests.

Qassemi insisted, though, that the Iranian government would not violently quash the protests.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s Constitution has provided democratic frameworks for legal support of ‎people’s civil demands, and it is totally possible to pursue such demands within the framework of law,” he ‎said.
