The Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Sarajevo today dismissed as baseless information published in some media in Bosnia-Herzegovina and attributing “unfounded accusations to the hero of the fight against terrorism and the symbol of victory over ISIL to General Qassem Soleimani.”
In a statement, they denied the published speculation, referring to “certain tendentious and false foreign sources” and expressed the expectation of greater adherence of the media to the principle of honesty in informing and avoiding the publication of unfounded and tendentious information.
They emphasized that the fundamental policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran is respect for international laws and support for the independence, security and territorial integrity of Bosnia-Herzegovina, its laws and the coexistence of all its peoples, and work on bilateral relations within the common interests of the peoples of the two countries.
Earlier, it was stated in the media that the US Congress has sent a resolution to Republican Senator Ted Cruz to pay tribute to members of the US military and intelligence agencies who have prepared a plan and executed the assassination of Qasem Soleimaini as part of a military mission.
Cruz reportedly pointed out that Soleimaini has planned or supported numerous deadly terrorist attacks in the US and its allies.
The resolution mentions that on December 31, 2019, Soleimani led the attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad, and that he planned to attack in Germany, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bahrain, Bulgaria, Turkey and many other countries.
