She said the missile "might as well have had "Made in Iran" stickers" on it, adding that Iran was violating United Nations resolutions.

Obama was initially reluctant to speak forcefully in favor of the demonstrations for fear the Iranian regime would undermine the grass-roots nature of the protests.

"We all know that's complete nonsense", she said at a news conference.

"The worldwide community failed to do that in 2009", she added, referring to Iran's Green Revolution.

UNRWA has made a point of perpetuating the refugee status of the descendants of those who fled their homes during the war that took place when surrounding Arab nations attacked Israel after the declaration of the establishment of the state in May 1948.

"The people of Iran are crying out for freedom", Haley said.

Ms Haley said the United States would be seeking emergency sessions of the UN Security Council and the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Commission in the coming days, to discuss the situation.

At the same time, he said North Korea would focus in 2018 on "mass-producing nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles for operational deployment". All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause.

Thousands of Iranians hit the streets beginning Thursday in the northeastern cities of Mashhad and Kashmar to protest rising commodity prices and perceived government mismanagement, according to local media reports. "But if it does, we must bring even tougher measures to bear against the North Korean regime", Haley said.

Haley declared that the protest are in "virtually in every city in Iran" and that they are calling for the "freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter".

"We are still communicating with people in Iran on Facebook and Twitter and we're constantly updating those two sites in Farsi", said Goldstein. "We need to also organize an global response". "So North Korea can talk with anyone they want but the U.S. is not going to recognise it or acknowledge it until they agree to ban the nuclear weapons that they have".

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.
