The US rejected the UN conclusions about the murder of Suleimani

The UN Special Rapporteur, in her report, called the American airstrike a violation of international law.

The United States rejected the conclusion of UN special Rapporteur Agnes Calamard that the American airstrike that killed Qasem Suleimani, commander of the elite Iranian Quds unit, was a violation of international law.

“We reject the report and opinions of UN Special Rapporteur Agnes Calamard regarding the American airstrike that killed Qassem Suleimani, commander of the Quds unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. MS Calamard’s conclusions are false,” US Secretary of state Michael Pompeo said.

He added that the strike was carried out in accordance with the inherent right of the United States to self-defense.

According to Calamard, the uncontrolled spread of armed drones poses a threat to world security, and the murder of Suleimani has increased the risk of international conflict. The United States attacked without receiving the prior consent of Iraq, thus violating the territorial integrity of this country.

“No evidence was provided that General Suleimani was planning an imminent attack on US interests, especially in Iraq, in which case immediate action would have been necessary and could have been justified,” the UN investigator said.
