Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousawi said on Wednesday that such remarks showed that Germany did not understand the facts, according to a statement made by Germany regarding the attack on Mr. Sulaimani. Tehran believes that Berlin is partly an accomplice to the brutal and unilateral actions of the United States.
In response, Mousavi said in a statement on Friday:\" These comments show that Berlin is not aware of the actual situation in the region and will intentionally or unintentionally turn the country (Germany) into an ally of State terrorism in the United States. \".
\"The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the German Government supports the position of the United States of America to take cruel and unilateral action against Iran, which violates international law and is to some extent an accomplice to this action, while Iran reminds the German Government of the crucial role played by General Sulaimani in the fight against IS terrorism, and that the continued existence of IS will endanger the lives of countless people and even Europe,\" he said.
In the early hours of the 3rd local time, the u.s. military launched a drone attack on iraq's baghdad international airport, killing iran's islamic revolutionary guard commander in charge of overseas operations general sullaimani, as well as iraq's shia militia \"people's mobilization organization\" of the actual power of muhandis.
In a series of responses from Iran's leaders on Wednesday, words such as mourning for Mr. Sulaimani's \"martyrdom \", slamming the United States for\" atrocities,\" and vowing to \"exacting revenge\" throughout.
The 62-year-old Sulaimani, Iran's most popular military figure, is considered \"one of the most powerful figures in the Middle East\" and \"a key figure in Iran's projection of regional forces \"; but in the eyes of the United States and its allies, he is a\" mortal enemy.\" U.S. media say both George W. Bush and Barack Obama have refused to order him to be killed for fear of provoking a U.S.-Iranian war, but Trump has acted, and it is hard to imagine Iran will not fire back in a fierce manner.
