Washington, Jan. 2 (BNA): The Unites States of America has "strongly condemned the arrest of peaceful demonstrators in Iran after protests against the regime which continue for the fourth day in a row and spread countrywide."
The White House Press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement: "There are many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with the regime’s corruption and its squandering of the nation’s wealth to fund terrorism abroad."
In a separate statement, State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert called on all countries to support the Iranian people publicly, their demands for fundamental rights and ending of the corruption.
