Brazilians pay homage in 3rd anniversary of Martyr Maj. Gen. Soleimani
Gharibi says that the assassination of foreign officials is condemned as a crime and is clearly subject to a lawsuit, as this is a terrorist attack.
The third anniversary of the assassination of Martyr Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani was commemorated in the city of Brasilia attended by activists from the Palestinian-Brazilian Institute, the Landless Workers movement, the Unified Workers' Central union, and the Labor Union of Brazil, alongside others.
Marcus Tenorio, historian, specialist in international affairs and the organizer of the event, stated that the Iranian hero was assassinated for defending the most important case, Palestine, and added that the US failed to be an obstacle in the Resistance's path, and so it violated Iraq's sovereignty and international treaties, which clearly shows they are the real terrorists.
The Iranian ambassador in Brazil, Hossein Gharibi, also spoke by expressing that Maj. Gen. Soleimani has become a symbol of fighting terrorism and that if it weren't for his efforts and sacrifices, ISIS would have taken control of Iraq and Syria - putting global security in danger.
Gharibi continued by saying that the assassination of foreign officials is condemned as a crime and is clearly subject to a lawsuit, as he added that Iran is against any form of violence and terrorist act. He declared Soleimani's assassination a terrorist act.
The commemoration was also attended by the members of the Comitê Anti-imperialist (Anti-Imperialist committee), the Sanod Youth Union, the Brazilian Center for Solidarity with the Peoples and Struggle for Peace (CEBRAPAZ), Maria Jose Maninha of the Socialism and Liberty Party, Ana Prestes, the Secretary of international relations of the Communist Party of Brazil, Alexandre de Moraes, justice of the Supreme Federal Court and Pedro Batista.
Latin America honors and remembers
A mural, depicting a picture of Soleimani alongside the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez ornamented with the flags of Iran and Venezuela, was inaugurated in a street in the Venezuelan capital, Caracas last Thursday.
Iranian Ambassador to Venezuela Hojat Soltani highlighted the importance of consolidating the revolutionary course and independence of both countries before the whole world.
"Venezuela is the land of heroes, the land of the liberator Simon Bolivar and the eternal leader Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias," he said, noting that "Iran reiterates its solidarity and mutual support that shall achieve victory for both nations."
On his part, the head of the Venezuelan-Iranian Parliamentary Friendship Group, Venezuelan MP Pedro Infante, expressed his solidarity with the Iranian people "in their struggle against the common enemy; US imperialism," as he put it.
Infante further said, "The drones that were used to assassinate Lieutenant General Soleimani are the same ones that attempted to assassinate President Nicolas Maduro."
