ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) - Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari reacted to the killing of Iran’s military commander in a US attack on Friday, and said that the death of Qasem Soleimani will damage the regional peace.
She took to Twitter and expressed that the war in an already unstable region is of no interest to anyone. She added that the US attack was regarded as an act of war by Iran.
Killing of General Suleimani by US has in an instant upped the military ante in the region as Iran has declared it an act of war. It is in no one s interest to have a war in an already volatile region. Brinkmanship is a dangerous strategy 4 all. UNSG must move to defuse situation— Shireen Mazari (@ShireenMazari1) January 3, 2020
Shireen Mazari further said that the death of Soleimani has accelerated the military power in the region. “Brinkmanship is a dangerous strategy for everyone,” she asserted, adding that the United Nations Security Council should play its part to de-escalate the tension in the region.
