Appreciating the actions of the Quds Force and other relevant governmental and non-governmental sectors for the legal and judicial pursuit of the assassination of Martyr Soleimani over the past year, Raisi also appreciated the cooperation of the Head of the Supreme Judicial Council of Iraq and stressed the need to continue this cooperation in three criminal, legal and international areas.

Referring to the US regime’s claims of immunity because of its legal status, he said that no element can prevent the US officials from being investigated and they should be accountable to the crimes committed in the assassination of martyr Soleimani.
