Iranian prosecutor Ali Alqaismehr made the remarks during a meeting today with high-ranking judicial officials, saying arrest warrants had been issued for 36 individuals including politicians and military officials from the United States and other governments.

Recall that the USA military killed Soleimani in an air strike outside Baghdad global airport.

Alqasi-Mehr was reported by Iran's Fars news agency as saying the warrants had been issued on charges of murder and terrorist action and that Iran would continue to pursue the matter after Trump's time in office ends.

Interpol, based in Lyon, France, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

An Interpol red notice is a request circulated to police around the world to locate and arrest a person wanted either by a country or an worldwide tribunal, pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.

36 individuals identified in connection to Soleimani assassination

Iran's Revolutionary Guards commander Qasem Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. strike, was one of the most popular figures in Iran and seen as a deadly adversary by America and its allies.

According to the official, judicial authorities adopted a resolution to bring these persons to justice and to appeal to Interpol to issue red notices against them. The notices cannot force countries to arrest or extradite suspects, but can put government leaders on the spot and limit suspects' travel.

In January, a US drone strike in Iraq killed Soleimani, who was the leader of the Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force.

After receiving a request, Interpol meets by committee and discusses whether or not to share the information with its member states.

It is nearly certain Interpol would not grant Iran's request as its guideline for notices forbids it from "undertaking any intervention or activities of a political" nature.
