U.S. Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook called the arrest warrant a "propaganda stunt".

Tehran's Prosecutor, Ali Alqasimehr, announced on Monday, June 29 that he had asked the Interpol to issue a "Red Notice" for detaining President Trump, who personally authorized the attack and others involved in the deadly drone strike, including USA political and military officials.

Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr mentioned Trump and much more than 30 other folks whom Iran accuses of involvement in the January three strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad deal with "murder and terrorism charges", the point out-operate IRNA information company claimed.

Analysts say the issuing of the arrest warrant is little more than a symbolic gesture by Iran, but that it reflects the depth of animosity felt towards President Trump.

Mr Alqasimehr did not identify anyone else sought other than Mr Trump, but stressed that Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends.

Furthermore, Interpol, based in Lyon, France, noted in a statement that its constitution forbade it to undertake "any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character".

"It's a propaganda stunt that no one takes seriously and makes the Iranians look foolish", Hook mentioned.

It should be noted that on January 3 this year, General Qasim Soleimani, a very popular general in Iran, was killed in a United States attack on Baghdad Airport by the most powerful force of Iran, Al-Quds.

The Pentagon blamed Soleimani for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and USA allies in the months leading up to his killing. Iran retaliated with a ballistic missile strike focusing on American troops in Iraq. It came after months of rising tensions between the two countries.
