Tillerson: Trump Will Either 'Fix or Cancel' Iran Nuclear Deal

He also said the strengthening of economic cooperation between Iran and the European Union member states is of great significance. Sharing a common language and culture, Iranians of various faiths, in Southern California and elsewhere in the United States, long have maintained close friendships and a mutual feeling of tolerance. "The solid people's stand will again tell the US, UK and those who live in London that you failed this time and will fail again".

The President also ordered the Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade and the Minister of Economic Affairs and Finance, as well as the Governor of the Central Bank to take measures to increase costs so that the exporters of state and private sectors can directly export their products to target countries. "The Iranian regime spends millions on militias in Iraq each year; it gives millions more each year to the Houthi rebels in Yemen, including sending them ballistic missiles to fire at other countries". They were sparked by a hike in food prices amid soaring unemployment but some demonstrators later called for the government's overthrow and chanted against the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

A 19-year-old participant in Iran's recent street protests says that while the wave of public demonstrations has subsided, the antiestablishment unrest in December and early January opened many Iranians' eyes and the underlying anger remains.

Violent unrest fuelled by economic grievances erupted in dozens of Iranian cities between Dec 28 and Jan 1, leaving at least 21 people dead.

According to the government, the official number of deaths since the uprising is 22.

On Monday, state-run Aftab News reported that Sina Ghanbari died in custody after being held in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison along with hundreds of other protesters.

The NCRI's president-elect Maryam Rajavi said the latest protests differed from those in 2009.

"They have nothing to lose", said the reporter, who had witnessed several protests in the Iranian capital. While many Iranians have thanked U.S. President Donald Trump for his support, the Trump administration plans to continue to enforce sanctions against the nation and does appear that he supports a regime change.

A number of demonstrators also called for the end of the Islamic Republic, which seized power in Iran in 1979.

Both Rouhani and Khamenei have acknowledged the protesters' right to be heard.

Iran's powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) said last week that the people and security forces had ended the unrest, which it said was fomented by Iran's foreign enemies.

US President Trump has tweeted his criticism of the Iranian government and has encouraged the protests.

"On the one hand it has succeeded in preventing these protests getting out of hand and contained them to a great extend and they did not achieve critical mass in terms of numbers", Randjbar-Daemi said.

"People had economic, political and social demands".

The truth is that whatever our reservations with the Iranian system, it is more democratic than those of Washington's Arab allies in the region.
