Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif announced the beginning of the end of the U.S. presence in the Middle East after the elimination of Iranian General Qasem Suleimani. The corresponding statement in response to the words of Mike Pompeo regarding the gratitude of Iranians for the liquidation of General Suleimani was published on Twitter.
"The end of the U.S. malign presence in West Asia has begun," Zarif wrote.
We recall that General Qasem Suleimani was killed on January 3 by order of US President Donald Trump as a result of a missile strike at Baghdad International Airport.
Soon, in his statement Trump called Suleimani "the number one terrorist in the world."
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called the assassination of El Quds commander General Qassem Suleimani “a huge mistake by the Americans.” He said this during a meeting with the relatives of the deceased, Iran’s state channel IRNA reports.
"The Americans did not even understand what a huge mistake they made. And they will feel the consequences of this crime for many years to come," Rouhani said.
