The U.S. president noted action he has taken to respond to Syria's use of chemical weapons against civilians during that country's protracted civil war and said, "The Syrian regime's butchery is enabled by Russian Federation and Iran".

"US policy always has engendered opposition from allies - Germany and France during the 2003 invasion of Iraq - but what's new is the derision".

Bolivian leader Evo Morales launched a blistering critique of USA policy toward Iran as well as Trump's immigration policies that resulted in the separation of migrant children from their parents.

"This awful, one-sided deal allowed Iran to continue its path toward a bomb and gave the regime a cash lifeline when they needed it the most", Trump complained.

Crude oil prices shot to a four-year high on Tuesday, catapulted by imminent USA sanctions on Iranian crude exports and the apparent reluctance of OPEC and Russian Federation to raise output to offset the potential hit to global supply.

"I never stop upholding the principle of sovereignty", Macron said.

Attending the UN General Assembly, Rouhani defended Iran's military support for the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, claiming Iranian help was needed as a bulwark to defeat the Islamic State terror group. We do not wish to attack them.

Trump then slammed the U.N. Human Rights Council, which the United States withdrew from in June due to its anti-Israel bias, in addition to announcing last month that it would cut funding to the body.

UNITED NATIONS: President Donald Trump on Wednesday faced a rebuke of his hardline Iran policy at a UN Security Council meeting that laid bare a rift between the United States and other world powers.

President Trump just finished addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations and it did not go as expected.

"Regrettably we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election coming up in November against my administration", he said.

"I am no fan of the president's, but it still pained me to see him openly mocked by the rest of the world", he said.

Wednesday's meeting highlighted a rift between the United States and its European allies over the Iran nuclear deal.

Even the most bullish of President Trump's supporters would have a tough time classifying his performance at the United Nations this week as a success.

The president also spoke about global affairs, including his relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

The scene of members of the U.N., many of whom depend on the United States for protection and preservation of the world order, laughing at America, is in many ways pathetic.
