Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad has spoken on the killing of Iranian general Qassem Solemani.
Following America’s aggression against Iran, the world’s oldest prime minister, Mahathir, called for a united Muslim Ummah. He spoke about how to unite Muslims to defend themselves from external threats. He called Qassem Soleimani’s killing in the US an ‘immoral act.’
For a long time, Mahathir, along with Turkish President Erdogan and Pakistani PM Imran Khan, has talked about how to address Muslims’ problems.
He said the drone attack was against all international laws in this particular incident.
Mahathir Mohammad, now aged 94, believed that the assassination of Soleimani would not be good for world affairs. He worried that in more ways than he could imagine, one U.S act would give birth to terrorism.
In addition, Mahathir was afraid that the US was acting as if it controlled the world. He said, for example, that if he said something that the head of a country did not appreciate, he would also be killed, just as Qassem Soleimani. Mahathir had also previously shown support for Kashmir.
Muslims protested outside the Iranian Embassy in Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur, seeking retribution for the U.S, chanting: “Down with the US, down with the US!”
Since coming into power, Mahathir Mohammad has been trying to put the relationship between Malaysia and Iran right. In a recent conference in Malaysia, he also hosted Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
Oil prices have exceeded $70 a barrel since the death of Qassem Soleimani.
The world does nno take this display of ‘aggression’ from the U.S. Since the initial attack, a lot has grown. If they retaliated or harmed any American, Donald Trump has constantly threatened Iran with more attacks.
