Interpol said it was unable to respond to Iran's request to arrest US President Donald Trump for alleged involvement in the assassination of General Soleimani of the Islamic Republic.

The International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) said its own rule does not allow the organization to meet Iranian requirements.

An Interpol spokesman said the organization maintains political neutrality and is prohibited from engaging in political, military, religious or racial activities.

Tehran on June 29 announced the wanted 36 people, including President Trump, on charges related to the January 3 attack that killed General Qassem Soleimani.
Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said Iran also asked Interpol to issue a "red wanted warrant" the highest arrest warrant for President Trump and other defendants. 

The prosecutor stressed that Iran would continue to prosecute Mr. Trump even when he finished his presidency.
Interpol acts as a communication channel between the executive organizations of the member states, helping countries to cooperate with each other in pursuing and arresting suspects fleeing abroad.

According to the process, after receiving a request to issue a wanted warrant, Interpol will convene the committee and discuss the decision to share information with member states. Interpol has no obligation to publish these wanted warrants.

The US carried out a drone attack on Baghdad International Airport that killed General Soleimani, commander of the Quds force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, on 3 January.

This is said to be a great loss for Iran, because General Soleimani is a hero in the eyes of the people of the country, and is one of the most influential strategists in the Middle East.
