Iran's issuance of an arrest warrant for U.S. President Donald Trump and 35 others over the killing of top general Qassem Soleimani is a "propaganda stunt", U.S. Iran envoy Brian Hook said at a news conference in Saudi Arabia on Monday.
"Our assessment is that Interpol does not intervene and issue Red Notices that are based on a political nature," Hook said alongside the Saudi minister of state for foreign affairs in Riyadh.
"This is a political nature. This has nothing to do with national security, international peace or promoting stability ... It is a propaganda stunt that no-one takes seriously," Hook said.
