VOA – A spokesman for the State Department warned in a recent statement about the terror efforts of the Islamic Republic outside of Iran and the violation of human rights inside Iran.
“There is a need for a serious action to stop the assassinations and violence committed by the Islamic Republic of Iran abroad, as well as to improve the human rights situation inside,” said Heather Nauert on Wednesday.
“We will continue to support the voices of the Iranian people and strengthen the global support of our efforts,” she said. The world must unite against Iran’s violation.”

The US State Department spokesman had earlier re-released a tweet from the US ambassador to the United Kingdom.
A US ambassador to Britain, Robert Wood Johnson, wrote in a Twitter message Wednesday that the United States believes that “targeted and sustained pressure” is the most effective way to change the bad behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
He also wrote: “The world needs to unite in order to not talk about Iran’s mistreatment.”
