Brian Hook, the U.S. Special Representative for Iran and senior Policy Advisor to the U.S. Secretary of State, lambasted the Iranian regime for suppressing their people.
“This regime is murdering protesters, they are oppressing them, and they are resisting their demands for a better way of life. Iranian people know that it is a deeply hypocritical regime, it is a corrupt religious Mafia that has been stealing the wealth of the Iranian people for decades and spending it in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen, Bahrain, Palestinian territories, bombing in Argentina, assassinations in Europe,” the U.S. special envoy noted.
