Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says General Soleimani, who was killed in the US strike, protected Europe and Britain from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).
On January 3, the United States killed Major General Qasem Soleimani, commander of Iran’s al-Quds Force, in a drone attack near the airport in the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
The US president described General Soleimani as the greatest terrorist in the world, while British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had said that General Soleimani’s hands were stained with the blood of our soldiers.
Now there is a telephonic connection between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in which the Iranian president told the British Prime Minister that if Soleimani had not defeated ISIS, you would not have enjoyed security in London.
Hassan Rouhani also said General Soleimani had protected Europe, including Britain, from ISIS.
He said Iran will continue to cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on the Nuclear Deal, but Europe, China and Russia must work together to strengthen the nuclear deal.
Boris Johnson told Hassan Rouhani that we are committed to a nuclear deal with Iran, despite pressure from the US to separate from the nuclear deal after Iran’s retaliation.
The Iranian president also contacted the head of the European Council on the telephone, saying that the US imposing sanctions on medicines and food commodities is an economic terrorism.
It should be noted that in response to the US attack, Iran also launched two ballistic missiles at two US military bases in Iraq that claimed the lives of 80 people.
US President Donald Trump announced further economic sanctions on Iran at a press conference following the Iranian attack.
