NATO Chief Comments on Assassination of Gen. Soleimani Condemned

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson strongly condemned comments from the secretary-general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in justification of the American assassination of Iranian commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani. In a statement on Wednesday, Abbas Mousavi strongly condemned the recent comments from NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in justification of the US assassination of Lieutenant General Soleimani, saying the remarks have been made in disregard of the principles of international law. “The performance of this military organization (NATO), one of whose influential members, namely the US regime, is a terrorist state on a global scale, has resulted in no achievement in recent years but devastation, wars, and insecurity for the people of the region and the world,” Mousavi said.
