The American armed forces carried out a dangerous provocation by killing Iranian General Kassem Suleimani, but European countries are still trying to shift the responsibility for escalating to Tehran.
Thus, in a joint statement by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, “concern is expressed about the negative role Iran has played in the region, including with the participation of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps”.
European leaders are calling for an end to the escalation of tension in the Middle East, while addressing only Iran.
“We urge Iran to abandon further violence and support it. We urge Iran to abandon any steps that run counter to the nuclear deal [Joint Comprehensive Action Plan for the Iranian Nuclear Program]”, – the communiqué says.
Moreover, Merkel, Macron and Johnson insist on maintaining a US military presence in the region and are calling for the promotion of such a scenario.
As News Front previously reported, last Friday the American armed forces carried out a resonant and extremely provocative attack, the victim of which was the commander of the elite Iranian unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Al-Quds Kassem Suleimani.
The blow was inflicted by personal order of President Donald Trump, allegedly with the aim of “protecting US personnel abroad”. The situation was commented on by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, calling the assassination of the military leader “an act of international terrorism”.
Iraq, on the territory of which the US scandalous crime was committed, also did not hesitate to retaliate. Considering that Washington did not coordinate the attack with Baghdad, the Iraqi parliament voted to expel foreign troops from the country and refuse to cooperate with the Western coalition to combat terrorists.More and more migrants are rushing to the UK shores as Brexit is approaching
