Tehran does not withdraw from negotiations with the White house on the nuclear deal after the death of General Soleimani, said the official representative of Iranian foreign Minister Abbas Mousavi. According to him, the war Iran does not seek, but will make US regret it, reports “Interfax”.
At the same time, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani spoke by phone with his Afghan counterpart Astrapon Ghani and expressed the hope that friendly countries will condemn this crime. From his part, Ghani pledged that Afghanistan will spare no effort to promote peace and stability, reports RIA Novosti.
the Death of Soleimani aggravated the already difficult situation in the region. Iran was supposed to announce the following measures to abandon nuclear obligations. Now the decision will be made taking into account the death of the General. Before that, Iran has repeatedly declared its readiness to negotiate in the format of “5+1”, if the States will cancel the sanctions, but ruled out the possibility of bilateral talks.
3 January, the Pentagon launched a missile attack on airport in Baghdad, which killed the commander of the special forces, “al-Quds” Islamic revolutionary guard Corps. The US defense Department said that the strike was ordered by President Donald trump, and wore a defensive character, as it was intended to protect stationed in Iraq and other countries of the American military. Washington argues that the planned General Soleimani attack could lead to the deaths of hundreds of Americans and Iraqis.
