The assassinated Iranian general, Qasem Soleimani, was a key figure in Russia-Iran relations, said Ali Akbar Velayati, an adviser to Iran’s supreme leader for international affairs, during the funeral ceremony, as cited by Al-Alam TV channel.
Ali Akbar Velayati said that the commander of the Al-Quds unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) “was a key figure in our bilateral partnership with Russia and was very respectful of Russian President Vladimir Putin.”
The farewell ceremony for the general was held today in Tehran. Millions of people took part in it. Tomorrow Soleimani will be buried in his hometown of Kerman.
Suleimani was killed by a U.S. missile airstrike on January 3 near Baghdad airport. Eleven other people were killed along with him.
After the general’s death, the situation in the Middle East escalated. Iraq demanded the withdrawal of American troops from its territory. Iran promised Washington a worthy response.

Not a surprise. Russia only cooperates with terrorists.
“The farewell ceremony for the general was held today in Tehran.”
35 Iranians were killed in a stampede to see this terrorist planted, and 48 injured. Like sheep to the slaughterhouse.
How do both NK and Iran develop ballistic missile and nuclear warhead tecnology so quickly? Information supplied by the major “state sponsor of terrorism, Pootlerstan!” The leaders of both NK and Iran hold a huge grudge against mainly the US of A and also other western countries like the UK. When they come into possesion of nuclear weapons, they are crazy enough to use them against Israel, the US and the UK. At that point you can not defeat them as they win the war or get to meet Allah/Lucifer. Either way their sick minds think they are victors.
Tzar Pootie of Mordor will use this to his advantage. With Israel and the US expending a bunch of defenses responding to the small fries, they sweep in to take control of what is left. Right now Washington is focused on Tehran as the source of terror predominantly in the middle east but extending like plant roots, much farther and out of sight. More attention needs to be focused on what the little shiit is up to!
