An adviser to the US President warned Iran against trying to retaliate.
Iran’s Ambassador to the UN, Majid Takht-Ravanchi, said in an interview with CNN that the murder of General Qasem Suleimani is tantamount to a Declaration of war. He stressed: “The response to military action is military action.”
National security adviser Robert O’Brien said any attempt by Iran to retaliate against the US for the elimination of Suleimani would be “a very bad decision.”
O’Brien held a telephone news conference, during which he told reporters that Suleimani was killed while traveling to the Middle East to plan attacks on American troops and diplomats in the region.
