Hesamodin Ashna, advisor to President Rouhani wrote in his tweet: “Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi says we have offered to mediate between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and the General has been the message carrier of Iran and has had an official meeting with me.”
“Zarif says that is true and that the Genaral (Qasem Soleimani) has carried the diplomatic message,”Ashna said, in reply to Pompeo claims: “We are sure there was no message because I asked the Saudis myself.” Wow!?
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hours ago, at a news conference, alleged that Lt. Gen Qasem Soleimani did not carry any messages from Iran to Saudi Arabia during his trip to Baghdad.
In completing his allegation, Pompeo added that he had spoken to his Saudi counterpart about this and that he had not.
