“Freedom and human dignity cannot be separated from peace and security. When the rights of the people are denied, the people rightly resist. If the concerns are not acknowledged, then peace and security are inevitably threatened. We have seen that repeatedly throughout human history. The case of Syria provides a horrible recent testament to this fact.” – Nikki Haley, Usun. State.Gov, 5 January 2018.
“The Iranian regime’s contempt for the rights of its people has been widely documented for many years. The people of Iran have finally had enough, and they are showing it by taking to the streets… If you listen to the slogans they chant in the street, this understanding comes through loud and clear. The United Nations reports that the Iranian regime spends at least $6 billion every year propping up the murderous Assad regime in Syria. The people of Iran know this. And so they are telling their government, “Let go of Syria.” “Think of us.”… ” – Nikki Haley, Usun. State.Gov, 5 January 2018.
“Today the people of Iran are speaking to their government, and their message is undeniable: Stop the support for terrorism. Stop giving billions of our money to killers and dictators.

“Freedom loving nations worldwide have spread support for the cause of the Iranian people. Canada. Norway. The United Kingdom. Israel. France. Sweden. The European Union. We honor and appreciate all of these statements of support for universal human rights. But we must do more. The Iranian regime is cutting off internet access in an attempt to shut down communication among the protestors. They are attempting to silence the voice of the Iranian people. We cannot allow that to happen.” – Nikki Haley, Usun. State.Gov, 5 January 2018.
“And let there be no doubt whatsoever: the United States stands unapologetically with those in Iran who seek freedom for themselves, prosperity for their families, and dignity for their nation. We will not be quiet. No dishonest attempt to call the protestors, “puppets of foreign powers,” will change that. The Iranian people know the truth. And we know the truth.” – Nikki Haley, Usun. State.Gov, 5 January 2018.
“The people of Iran are crying out for freedom. … All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause.” – Nikki Haley, Aljazeera, 3 January 2018.

“Pakistan has played a double game for years. They work with us at times, and they also harbor the terrorists that attack our troops in Afghanistan… That game is not acceptable to this administration. We expect far more cooperation from Pakistan in the fight against terrorism.” – Nikki Haley, Reuters, 2 January 2018.
“As we hear reports that North Korea might be preparing for another missile test — I hope that does not happen, but if it does — we must bring even more measures to bear on the North Korea regime. … The civilized world must remain united and vigilant against the rogue state’s nuclear arsenal. We will never accept a nuclear North Korea.” – Nikki Haley, CNN, 2 January 2018.
“In the New Year, our hopes and prayers are with the millions of people who are suffering terribly from oppressive governments in North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, and especially in Iran, where the long-repressed Iranian people are now finding their voice, … The Iranian government is being tested by its own citizens. We pray that freedom and human rights will carry the day.” – Nikki Haley, Washington Examiner, 31 December 2017.

“America will put our embassy in Jerusalem. No vote in the United Nations will make any difference on that, … But this vote will make a difference on how Americans look at the UN, and on how we look at countries who disrespect us in the UN.” – Nikki Haley, The Manila Times, 27 December 2017.
“Let me find out exactly what our stance is on that, and what if anything the United States is doing or thinks should be done … [speaking on the U.S. plans about Binomo] … We’re supposed to have White House meetings on all issues with the South China Sea coming forward, so I think we’ll have more answers at that time.” – Nikki Haley, Herald Online, 26 December 2017.
