US President Joe Biden urged Iranian leaders not to take violent action against protesters in the country
US President Joe Biden urged Iranian leaders not to take violent action against protesters in the country who have been protesting for weeks after the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in mid-September. Mahsa Amini was detained by Tehran’s morality police for violating the country’s strict women’s dress code.
Biden said in the Californian city of Irvine that he was “amazed” by the mass protests in Iran and emphasized that the United States supports the “brave women” of that country. – Iran must stop the violence against its own citizens who are just exercising their basic rights, said Biden.
– I was amazed by what woke up in Iran. And something woke up that I don’t think will subside for a long, long time, the American president said.
Biden stressed that women and men should have the right to freedom of expression and assembly. – Women are persecuted all over the world in different ways. But they should be able to wear whatever they want, for God’s sake. No one should tell them what to wear, he added.
Since Mahsa Amini’s death, protests against Iran’s leadership have taken place across the country and abroad, particularly against the mandatory wearing of headscarves. Security forces responded with a fierce crackdown, reportedly killing dozens and injuring many.
