The United States has rejected the United Nations report this Thursday, which assures that the death of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani in a January bombing of the North American country in Iraq was “illegal” and “arbitrarily executed” while he described his report “wrong” conclusions.
The report, drawn up by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Agnes Callamard, also argues that Washington has not provided evidence to justify this measure.
“Ms. Callamard’s conclusions are wrong,” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement defending the attack on Soleimani “often in response to a series of increasingly armed attacks in the past few months from Iran and the militias it supports. “
“It was done to prevent Iran from launching or supporting new attacks against the United States or its interests, and to compromise the capabilities of the Quds Force,” he said.
