TEHRAN, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- The Iranian foreign ministry said on Sunday that U.S. President Joe Biden meddled in Iran's "state matters" by supporting "riots" in the country, state-owned Press TV reported.

"On Saturday, Biden interfered for the umpteenth time in Iran's state matters by supporting the riots as he has done ever since the outbreak of recent developments in Iran," the Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani was quoted as saying by Press TV.

Iran has not given in to the U.S. "cruel sanctions and idle threats" and will be unfazed by its interventionist policies and the futile campaign, Kanaani added.

A day earlier, Biden said he "was surprised by the courage of the people taking to the streets in protest in Iran." Protests broke out across Iran following the death of 22-year-old woman Mahsa Amini on Sept. 16 at a hospital in the capital Tehran after police custody.

"You (U.S. officials) are accustomed to fishing in troubled waters. Since the 1953 coup until today, the anti-Iranian policies by the U.S. government have been well recorded in our minds," Kanaani said.
