Russian Federation condemns United States killing of Iranian general


During his phone conversation with Minister Zarif, the EU's top diplomat offered his support to calm the tensions in the region and expressed his concerns about the violent developments in Iraq, including the killing of Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani.

"The Russian minister has pointed out that this step by the fraught with serious consequences for peace and security in the region and that it does not aid the efforts on finding solutions to hard issues accumulated in the Middle East".

Maj. Gen. Soleimani, 62, the head of Iran's elite al-Quds force and the architect of its regional security apparatus, was killed when a US drone fired missiles into a convoy that was leaving the Baghdad International Airport early on Friday. But right-wing Italian opposition leader Matteo Salvini praised Trump for eliminating "one of the most risky and pitiless men in the world, an Islamic terrorist, an enemy of the West, of Israel, of rights and of freedoms". "India has consistently advocated restraint and continues to do so", the MEA statement said.

Major General Soleimani, the deputy head of Iraq's Hashd al-Shaabi, and a number of their entourage were killed in a strike by American drones near Baghdad International Airport in the early hours of Friday.

Meanwhile, Iran summoned the Swiss envoy to Tehran to complain about US President Donald Trump's threats of targeting Iranian cultural sites. It is vital that the situation does not escalate further. It is primarily responsible for military and clandestine operations outside Iran.

"I reiterated the importance of countering the Iranian regime's destabilising activities", he said. The increase in tension has alarmed the world. The Republicans welcome President Trump's action and the Democrats warn of the potential impact.

The deaths of Gen. Qassem Soleimani and several associates drew immediate cries for revenge from Tehran and a chorus of appeals from other countries seeking reduced tensions between Iran and the United States.
