The source reproduced quoted Esmail Baghael Hamaneh, Iranian permanent representative at the United Nations in Geneva, who rejected the description of arbitrary murder issued by a UN special rapporteur.
The diplomat assured that Soleimani was a true defender of human rights and opposed terrorism by extremist groups.
Hamaneh described the crime committed by the United States as brutal, arbitrary, unjust and illegal with implications against peace and security in the world.
He said that the criminal intentions with the position of not holding the perpetrators of the murder responsible nor bringing them to justice are clear.
For the Iranian people, Soleimani is a symbol and he is remembered by all West Asian nations, he noted.
In any case, he added, neither the Iranians nor neighboring countries will give up their demand to bring the assassins to justice.
General Qassem Soleimani; the deputy commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units, Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, and other combatants were killed on January 3, 2020, in an attack carried out by US aviation in Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, following orders from then US President Donald Trump.
