Iran asks the US to “let the Americans breathe” and condemns the “crackdown” after Floyd’s death

The Government of Iran has asked the United States on Monday to “let the Americans breathe” and has condemned the “repression” of the protests unleashed in the country after the death of George Floyd, a black man, at the hands of the Police in the city of Minneapolis.

“End the violence against your people and let them breathe,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Musavi, who stressed that “the world has heard the call against state oppression” in the United States.

“We deeply regret seeing the American people who seek respect and an end to violence be indiscriminately repressed and face the greatest violence,” he added, according to the Iranian news agency Tasnim.

He also stressed that “the United States regime uses violence and intimidation inside the country and abroad.” “We see with sadness, along with the rest of the world, the violence that the policies of the United States have recently provoked,” he said.

Floyd’s death last week after spending nearly nine minutes with his neck strapped to the knee of Police Officer Derek Chauvin has sparked protests, riots, and looting in the most populous city in the state of Minnesota, now under a state of emergency, as well as in other parts of the country.

The video of the arrest, which went viral after the event, shows Floyd lying on the ground and reduced by several agents. In it, you can see that the man tells the police that he cannot breathe before he vanishes and dies.
