(TEHRAN, Iran) — Iran has issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol for help in detaining President Donald Trump and dozens of others it believes carried out the U.S. drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad, a local prosecutor reportedly said Monday.
Interpol later said it wouldn’t consider Iran’s request, meaning Trump faces no danger of arrest. However, the charges underscore the heightened tensions between Iran and the United States since Trump unilaterally withdrew America from Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers.
The article goes on to state the following:
Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said Trump and 35 others whom Iran accuses of involvement in the Jan. 3 strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad face “murder and terrorism charges,” the state-run IRNA news agency reported.
The report states that Alqasimehr declared Iran has requested a “red notice” be issued on the arrest request for Trump and the others.
In a separate report, CNN quoted Tehran attorney general Ali Alqasi Mehr as claiming that Trump would be prosecuted as soon as his presidency ends.
Interpol reportedly told CNN it “would not consider requests of this nature,” explaining the request for Trump’s arrest was not in accordance with its rules and constitution.

US Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook responded to the “arrest warrant,” by saying during a press conference on Monday, “It’s propaganda that we’re used to. This has nothing to do with national security, international peace or promoting stability, so we see it for what it is — it’s a propaganda stunt that no one takes seriously and makes the Iranians look foolish,” he added.
Meanwhile, Hook announced that Iranian weapons found in Yemen are all the evidence needed to not lift the arms embargo on #Iran, during a press conference with the Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir on Monday.
