Donald Trump has said the US airstrike that killed a top Iranian general was designed to prevent a war with Iran – not start one.
The US president claimed Major General Qassem Soleimani had been planning “imminent and sinister attacks on US diplomats and military personnel” before Friday morning’s drone strike in Iraq.
In an address from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, Mr Trump stated that he was not seeking regime change.
Instead he said the aim had been to eliminate “the number one terrorist anywhere in the world”.
