Rouhani says more than economy triggered Iran protests

The demonstrators in Iran mobilized against issues including the country's economic woes.

We stand with the proud people of Iran because it is right, and because the regime in Tehran threatens the peace and security of the world. Rohani acknowledged that "people had economic, political, and social demands" and said Iranians "have a legitimate right to demand that we see and hear them and look into their demands".

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also blamed "Americans and Zionists" for the protests, saying money supporting them came from "one of the filthy- rich governments of the Persian Gulf".

"The EU High Representative Federica Mogherini will convene a meeting with ministers of foreign affairs of E3 countries - France, Jean-Yves Le Drian, Germany, Sigmar Gabriel, and the UK Boris Johnson - and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on Thursday 11 January in Brussels", the 28-member bloc said in a statement.

How could the Republican Guard surrender its slice of the Iranian economy and end its foreign interventions without imperiling its reason for being - to protect and promote the Iranian Islamic revolution?

The third is the Trump administration, which had in the past shown no interest in democratic change in the region, instead devoting its energy to annulling the nuclear agreement with Iran and repositioning itself in the Middle East after successive U.S. withdrawals since its defeat in Iraq. While reformists largely stayed away from the recent protests, releasing such figures puts pressure on their hard-line opponents who exercise control over Iran's judiciary and security services.

"This systemic economic mismanagement has its roots in the political system, and it grows worse every day". In 2009, demonstrations were mostly only seen in the important cities of Iran, whereas now, they are much more extensive, engulfing regions across the country.

Oil at highest since mid-2015 amid Iran tensions, tighter market " Some of the current leaders live detached from the problems and concerns of the people, and do not know anything about the reality of society", they reported him saying.
