The US does not "take seriously" Iran's hunting on Trump
The already tense relations between the Middle East and the United States were exacerbated today when the Iranian government issued a warrant for the arrest of United States President Donald Trump.
According to a statement from Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr, Trump is charged with the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani and terrorism. The missile strike that led to the death of the Iranian military commander took place on January 3rd. After that, Donald Trump loudly announced what he had done on his twitter.
....of PROTESTERS killed in Iran itself. While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. They are not nearly as saddened as the leaders will let the outside world believe. He should have been taken out many years ago!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2020
It also became known that the Iranian government plans to enlist the support of Interpol in the capture of Donald Trump, even after the end of the presidential term.
The US quickly responded to Iran’s statement and described it as “propaganda stunt.”
"Our assessment is that Interpol does not intervene and issue Red Notices that are based on a political nature," Hook said at a news conference in Saudi Arabia, reports Aljazeera. "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,"
According to current international law, it is unlikely that Interpol will satisfy Iran’s demand and arrest the US president, but as part of the procedure, it is possible to limit Trump on traveling abroad.
