Iran will never forget and forgive general Qassem Soleimani's assassination, Mehr reported referring to MFA's spokesperson Seyed Abbas Mousavi.

"The coward assassination of Gen. Soleimani, the anti-terrorism hero of our region, was “an arbitrary killing” & a clear violation of the UN charter," he tweeted.

"The US is responsible for this criminal act, & can’t whitewash this by chastising the UN," Mousavi added. "We’ll never forget, we’ll never forgive."

UN Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard earlier called the assassination of General Soleimani by US forces a violation of international law.
