HIGHLIGHTS

  • The commander of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), General Qassem Soleimani was killed in a drone strike directed by Trump.
  • Iran has issued a arrest warrant for Trump.
  • Iran seeks Interpol's help detaining Trump.

Iran has issued an arrest warrant against US President Donald Trump. He is one of the 36 persons Iran has issued a warrant. The warrant has been issued over the killing of a top Iranian Military Officer. Iran has accused Trump and over 30 others of ‘murder, terrorism charges'. General Qassem Soleimani was killed in a US drone strike at Baghdad International Airport on 3rd January 2020, he was the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) and linked to assassination bids abroad, he was also considered close to Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei. US government accused Soleimani of plotting imminent attacks against the US and viewed him as a ruthless killer. “General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region,” said by the Pentagon at the time, calling the strike “decisive defensive” action to deter future Iranian attacks.

 Iran has sought Interpol’s help detaining Trump and asked it to issue a Red Notice for these 36 persons. Red Notice is the topmost level arrest issued by the Interpol, the local authorities have to arrest on behalf of the country that has requested it on the orders of Interpol. Interpol is unlikely to take action as per the reports, as its guidelines forbid activities of political nature. The Interpol said in a statement that its constitution forbade it to undertake “any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character”. 

 US-Iran relations have been strained ever since Trump pulled out JCPOA. JCPOA was a deal signed by the Former President of US Barack Obama to curb Iran’s nuclear weapons program inked with global powers. 

 Iranian Prosecutor Alqasimehr said that Tehran would pursue Trump’s arrest even after his presidency ends. The killing of Soleimani brought the US and Iran to the brink of armed conflict after Iran retaliated by firing missiles at US targets in Iraq several days later.
