BEIJING, China (PNN) - January 3, 2020 - China on Friday has requested restraint from all sides, "especially the (Fascist Police States of Amerika)," after the FPSA killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in an air strike at Baghdad international airport.
"China has always opposed the use of force in international relations," Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily press conference. "We urge the relevant sides, especially the (FPSA), to remain calm and exercise restraint to avoid further escalating tensions."
Shuang said the international community must respect Iraq's independence and territorial integrity.
He urged both sides to abide by the principles of the U.N. charter and the "basic norms of international relations."
FPSA Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted on Friday morning that he spoke with "Chinese Politburo Member Yang Jiechi to discuss @realDonaldTrump 's decision to eliminate Soleimani in response to imminent threats to Amerikan lives. I reiterated our commitment to de-escalation."
Last week, Iran, China and Russia held a joint war drill in the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Oman as a deterrent against FPSA forces.
The Amerikan Gestapo Department of State division tweeted Friday that all FPSA citizens must "depart Iraq immediately".
Iran is preparing for war by positioning fighter jets on its border and placing its ballistic missile bases on high alert.
Approximately 4,000 FPSA troops could be deployed to the Middle East in the near term.
As for de-escalation, let's hope that's the case. Otherwise, the world is on edge for a possible counterattack by Iran.
