Contrary to Trump's claims, the defense minister said - no evidence that Iran was going to target our 4 embassies


The US has not yet offered evidence in favor of General Sulaimani's murder. President Donald Trump claimed two days ago without evidence that General Suleimani was to target the 4 embassies in West Asia along with the embassy in Baghdad. However, it is now US Defense Minister Mark Asper who has refused to confirm Trump's claims. Asper told a channel on Sunday, "I did not know to come across any attack on the four embassies." There is no evidence related to this. "

However, he defended the president's statement, saying, "Like Trump, I also thought he would target our embassies." Because they show our strength in any country. "

What did Trump claim?

Trump said in an interview with Fox News, "I think he was plotting to attack the four embassies. Perhaps there was a conspiracy to attack the embassy in Baghdad as well. ”However, a week after Sulemani's assassination, Trump made the claim without providing any evidence or other information. Earlier, Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo and Trump administration officials have not been able to say anything concrete about the killing of Sulemani.

According to Article 51 of the United Nations Charter, any country has to present evidence in its favor after taking action in another country. The US administration has not yet been able to give the exact reasons for killing General Sulaimani. Foreign Minister Pompeo said at the press conference that General Suleimani was the target of American officers in the West Asia region, but he did not give further details. When asked how Sulaimani was a threat, Pompeo turned the issue to the American contractor killed in a rebel attack in December.
