The United States is deeply concerned by reports that Iran has imprisoned thousands of its citizens and tortured or killed some of them in detention, the White House said on Wednesday, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

“We will not remain silent as the Iranian dictatorship represses the basic rights of its citizens and will hold Iran’s leaders accountable for any violations,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
