Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 2
By Khalid Kazimov – Trend:
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has highlighted the right of people to protest in the Islamic Republic.
Over the past week, some groups of people joined demonstrations in a number of cities, including the capital Tehran, Mashhad and Kermanshah to protest against high prices, but the economic protests soon turned into anti-government demonstrations.
The government officials have urged people to refrain from participating in the illegal protests.
