"Now the Iranian dictatorship is trying to do what it always does, which is to say that the protests were designed by Iran's enemies". "We all know that's complete nonsense".

Haley said the U.S. was seeking emergency sessions on Iran at the United Nations Security Council in NY and at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

"All are proof that Iran has defied the worldwide community and not just one time".

Still, a senior administration official said U.S. officials are taking inventory of ways they can be supportive of the demonstrations and come up with "creative" ideas.

The offer was quickly disavowed by the White House, which ruled out a dialogue with Pyongyang until it "fundamentally improves its behaviour".
