Tension of relations between Iran and the United States continues to increase. The escalation of tension was triggered by the death Iran's elite Quds forces commander due to drone strikes in Baghdad.

Qasem Soleimani, one of the Generals at the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, was killed near Iraqi Baghdad International Airport. Tehran insists that the General died because he was killed by US troops. The death of General Qasem Soleimani, became a new issue that led to increased tensions with the United States. Especially with the statement of Tehran to arrest President Donald Trump.

Shortly after the death of Qasem Soleimani last January, the Iranian government issued an official statement. Tehran insists it will not comply with restrictions on nuclear production.

The poor relations between Iran and the United States also became worse when Ali Alqasimehr, a prosecutor in Iran, stated that the President of the United States and 35 others were accused of murder and terrorism. Tehran asks the Interpol to help arrest and detain Donald Trump.

It is very likely that the Interpol, based in Paris, France will not grant Tehran's request. The uncertainty that it was  Trump who ordered the killings might become a  consideration for Interpol not to  grant Iran's requests, in addition to several other reasons. Along with that, of course it is not easy for Iran to be able to arrest  Donald Trump. Washington itself does not appear to be responding seriously to the Iranian threat. The US special representative to Iran even still considers the order to arrest Donald Trump merely a matter of propaganda.

However, Tehran's statement to arrest the President of the United States, Donald Trump, at least to this day, can be considered a sign of Iran's resistance. This shows an increasingly intense hostility on the part of Iran.
