Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has warned the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani by the United States was a grave mistake.
Speaking in Tehran on Tuesday, Zarif said the US had miscalculated by targeting the top military leader in a drone attack on Friday.
He called it an act one of “cowardice” and described Soleimani as a freedom seeker of the Middle East region.
