The Iranian regime is spreading extremism and terror in the region and the world, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Friday.
In a press conference in Washington, Nauert pointed out that the Iranian people need the help and support of the international community to counter the regime abuses.
“The Iranian regime is restricting religious freedoms in the country,” said the spokeswoman for the State Department.
She further said: “The Iranian regime continues to arrest its opponents and practises torture and persecution of prisoners.”
Nauert expressed displeasure with the Iranian regime’s restriction of religious freedoms in the country.
