In a phone call with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Iranian Foreign Minister Sergei Zarif said Mr. Suleimani died in a \"terrorist act\" in the United States, Russian satellite networks reported.
In a phone call with Guterres, the satellite network reported that \"all the consequences will be borne by the United States\" and described the U.S.'s actions as \"terrorist acts.\"
\"This is an extremely dangerous, stupid [action] upgrade... He is the most effective force against ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists.
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.
