U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Friday delivered a warning to Iran and said that no government can deny human rights to its citizens.

Haley made her remarks at a United Nations Security Council meeting that was scheduled after the U.S. requested an emergency session to discuss the protests in Iran.

NBC News posted a clip on Twitter of Haley telling Iran that the United States "stands unapologetically with those in Iran who seek freedom for themselves."

"Today the people of Iran are speaking to their government and their message is undeniable," Haley said. "Stop the support for terrorism. Stop giving billions of our money to killers and dictators. Stop taking our wealth and spending it on foreign fighters and proxy wars. Think of us."

Haley went on to list many "freedom-loving" countries that have spread their support for Iran's people and their freedoms.

"We must do more. The Iranian regime is cutting off internet access in an attempt to shut down communication among the protesters," Haley said. "They are attempting to silence the voice of the Iranian people. We cannot allow that to happen. Every U.N. member state is sovereign, but member states cannot use sovereignty as a shield when they categorically deny their people human rights and fundamental freedoms."

She then called on all of her colleagues to join her in amplifying the message of the Iranian people before demanding that the Iranian government stop censoring the voices of the Iranians.

"In the end, the Iranian people will determine their own destiny, 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," Haley said.
