Iran would bring the issue of U.S. assassination of the General Qassem Suleimani to the UN Security Council. This was announced at a briefing by the official representative of the Iranian Foreign Ministry Abbas Mousavi, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
"The Iranian Foreign Ministry has already initiated political, legal and international measures, including these at the level of the UN and Security Council," Mousavi said.
General Qassem 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 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.
According to him, the assassination of Suleimani is "tantamount to the outbreak of war against Iran."
Tehran will determine where the promised military action would be held.
Taht-Ravanchi denies the claim by US President Donald Trump and American politicians that Suleimani posed a threat to US security, and its elimination was aimed at preventing war.
