Top US senator Bernie Sanders has strongly condemned the assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, a prominent Iranian physicist, saying that the murder is illegal and “an attempt to thwart the possibility of Iran’s negotiation with the new US administration.”
In a Twitter message on Saturday, Sanders said the assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was insane, provocative and illegal.
“A new US administration is set to take power, and the assassination makes it clear that it is a move to thwart a possible diplomatic process between Iran and the United States,” he said.
However, we should not allow such incidents to happen at all. Not murder but the diplomatic way is the best way forward, Bernie Sanders added.
Meanwhile, John Bolton, a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and national security adviser to US President Donald Trump, has backed the assassination of Iranian scientist Fakhrizadeh.
He asserted that the killings are justified in order to thwart the possibility of Iran building an atomic bomb.
