At least 1,000 people have been arrested in the biggest anti-government protests for almost a decade, with the judiciary saying ringleaders could face the death penalty.

Iran says it has arrested dozens on suspicion of "terrorist activities" during a recent wave of protests. "All of us must follow up", Mr Khamenei said.

Iran has foiled attempts by its foreign enemies to turn legitimate protests into an insurgency to overthrow the Islamic Republic, Reuters reported the supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei saying today.

Demonstrations broke out across Iran last month fueled by anger at the lackluster economy and official corruption.

As well as Washington and London, Mr Khamenei blamed the violence on Israel, exiled dissident group People's Mujahedin of Iran and "a wealthy government" in the Gulf, a reference to Iran's regional rival, Saudi Arabia.

While Khamenei and hardliners, including the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), insist on foreigners being behind the protests, President Hassan Rouhani and some reformists maintain that this an "insult to Iranian people".

"The United States is abusing the platform of the Security Council". "It is not a matter of one or two or five years".

"The Iranian regime is likely to contain the current unrest not only due to its political and security control but also because of the greater influence of its spiritual leadership", said the expert, expecting Iran to "overcome the current crisis fast".

Four days ago, Russian ambassador to the UN Vassily Nebenzia claimed that the United States is exploiting the protests in Iran in order to derail the landmark nuclear deal with the Middle East country.

Abul-Nour added that the support gives an excuse to the Iranian regime to accuse the protesters of being agents and traitors.
