Iran: You can't rule out further revenge for Soleimani

Iran can not exclude the possibility that there will be further retaliation against the UNITED states after the killing of the iranian general Qassem Soleimani.

It says Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarife, Saturday at the international security conference in Munich.

He stresses that Iran's official retribution is completed and adds that his country is not hævngerrigt.

But it is possible that parts of the population in Iraq will avenge themselves on the UNITED states, believes Zarife.

In large parts of the Middle east is a network of militias with ties to Iran.

the UNITED states'killing of Soleimani happened on iraqi soil and caused great anger in the region - even in Iraq. According to Zarife, it has gotten the iraqis to turn against the UNITED states.

The us president, Donald Trump, gave the order to implement the droneangrebet, that killed the high general 3. January. Soleimani was the commander of Iran's powerful al-Quds elite force.

According to Iran's foreign minister has Trump probably listened to bad advice from his former security adviser John Bolton. Bolton is known for its tough stance and a strategy, which is to put maximum pressure on Iran.

- Now that John Bolton is gone, there are unfortunately others who try to imitate John Bolton and has promised the president that the killing of Soleimani will get people to dance in the streets in Tehran and Baghdad, saying Zarife.

It was, apparently, a reference to a tweet, as the UNITED states secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, wrote after the killing of the iranian general.

Also, the iraqi militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis was killed along with Soleimani.

Iran did the killing in the days after in the form of two attacks against the military bases in Iraq used by u.s. soldiers.

Since the killing of Soleimani and the iraqi militia leader, the mood has been tense in Iran and Iraq.
