Havana:Cuba’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Bruno Rodríguez condemned the US act of terrorism in assassinating IRGC Commander of Quds Lt. General Qasem Soleimani in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

In a tweet on Friday Rodríguez wrote, “We strongly condemn US drone strike on Baghdad airport and use of missiles for targeted killings. This action is a serious escalation in the Middle East where a conflict might break out with unforeseeable consequences for international peace and security.”

The United States terrorist forces assassinated General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s pro-government Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) — better known as Hashd al-Sha’abi — in an attack at Baghdad’s international airport early on Friday. The Pentagon said in a statement that US President Donald Trump had ordered the attack.

General Soleimani’s body will be transferred to Iran on Monday to be buried in his hometown, Kerman.
