United States to cut UNRWA funding if Palestinians don't return to negotiations

US Ambassador Nikki Haley speaking at the UN headquarters in New York

Nikki Haley, the US Ambassador to the United Nations, called on the global community to speak out on the unfolding protests in Iran, saying the US would seek emergency UN talks on the situation. "The UN must speak out".

"Big protests in Iran". 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".

"The President has basically said that he doesn't want to give any additional funding, until the Palestinians are agreeing to come back to the negotiation table", Nikki Haley said.

The demonstrations in Iran, which have erupted against a backdrop of rising food and gasoline prices, began Thursday in the northeastern city of Mashhad before spreading to other cities. "We won't take any of the talks seriously if they don't do something to ban all nuclear weapons in North Korea", Haley said.

"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.

She also urged the worldwide community to speak out on the unfolding protests in Iran.

Penn State holds off Washington to win Fiesta Bowl
According to a tweet from ESPN's Kyle Bonagura , the 1-8 record is the worst bowl season ever by a Power 5 conference. Before the play, the Huskies (10-3) hadn't allowed a run over 35 yards all season.

"The worldwide community has a role to play on this", Haley urged.

Haley said that there were reports that North Korea might be preparing a new missile test launch in the coming days and threatened "even tougher measures" against the regime if he carried out the test. "All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause", Nikki Haley told reporters at the UN's NY headquarters.

"The Iranian dictatorship is trying to do what it always does, which is to say that the protests were designed by enemies". In her remarks, Haley wasted no time criticizing the regime and siding with the protesters against their oppressors. Let them vote against us. We think that we need to have them stop nuclear weapons, and they need to stop it now.

"These accusations seek also to cover up for the Saudi war crimes in Yemen, with United States complicity", a statement by the mission's spokesman read. "We must not make that mistake again".

Diplomats tell CNN the Trump administration was in touch with European allies over the weekend to coordinate strategies, but efforts to put out a joint statement were met with reluctance from some governments.
