Iranian prosecutor points finger at CIA, Israel and Saudi Arabia for unrest

French President Emmanuel Macron delivers his New Year wishes to members of the diplomatic corps at the Elysee Palace in Paris France

Since protests unfolded across Iran last week, President Trump has not hesitated to make his opinions known, much to the chagrin of Iranian and other worldwide leaders.

France, he said, wanted to maintain some balance.

More so, Macron is said to believe that Iran's missile program remains boundless.

'Oppressive regimes can not endure forever, and the day will come when the Iranian people will face a choice. "This crisis (comes from) the free expression of the Iranian people".

Macron said it was necessary "to increase global pressure on Iran" but not "break off dialogue".

The U.S president weighed into the current wave of protest gripping Iran, tweeting his support for the demonstrators and heavily criticising the government.

The French leader also said he wants to see the emergence of an accord limiting Iran's regional presence that is considered destabilizing, ticking off its actions in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen. Montazeri is quoted in Iran's Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) as saying that Andrea, and an unnamed officer affiliated with Israel's spy agency Mossad, masterminded the plot dubbed the "Consequential Convergence Doctrine" and that Saudi Arabia picked up the bill. "Saudi Arabia bore all costs", said the prosecutor general.

In October, Mr. Trump declined to certify that Iran was complying with the nuclear deal. However, the Trump administration has denied a role in the protests. More specifically, he alleged that the Central Intelligence Agency planned to turn the protest into an "armed" insurrection by mid-February, the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, according to the AP.

An Iranian source who spoke anonymously with The Washington Times this week said concerns are high inside Iran that an aggressive crackdown by the regime in Tehran could devolve into a Syria-style situation in which outside powers attempt to militarize the protesters.
