Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei strongly criticised US President Donald Trump’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents on its southern border, during a meeting with members of the Iranian parliament in Tehran on Wednesday.

“How can they be convinced over a policy, a procedure, to initiate such a wrong and criminal overture of separating several thousands of children from their mothers? This is who they are. This is who they are. These are the same several big, advanced powers which, equipped with modern arms, took to the sea to face the people of Yemen and to take from them a port city which is their only passage to breathe. They kill people without a doubt. This is who they are”, stated Khamenei.

He also called on the “Islamic Republic” to “stand up against this”.

US President Donald Trump's administration has been roundly condemned for its treatment of migrants on its southern border, in particular a 'zero-tolerance' policy that has led to the separation of children from their parents.
