Leader of the Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force, with a drone strike in Iraq on Jan. 3, The United States killed Qasim Soleimani, US accused Qasim Soleimani of masterminding attacks by Iranian-aligned militias on U.S. forces in the region.
The warrants had been issued on charges of murder and terrorist action, Ali Alqasimehr said adding that Alqasimehr said Iran had asked Interpol to issue a “red notice” seeking the arrest of Trump and the other individuals the Islamic Republic accuses of taking part in the killing of Soleimani.
Tehran prosecutor said the group included other U.S. military and civilian officials but did not provide further details.
Brian Hook, U.S. Iran envoy said the warrant was a “propaganda stunt”, He added “Our assessment is that Interpol does not intervene and issue red notices (of) a political nature,”
Brain further added that “This is a political nature. This has nothing to do with national security, international peace or promoting stability … It is a propaganda stunt that no-one takes seriously.”
In a statement issued by Interpol said that its constitution forbade it to undertake “any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character”. “Therefore, if or when any such requests were to be sent to the General Secretariat,” it added, “… Interpol would not consider requests of this nature.”
