Japan supports U.S. measured response to Iranian missile strike

But most Republicans lawmakers have stood by the president.

Beijing's Ministry of Foreign Affairs today accused Washington of ignoring global law and its worldwide duties with the proposal.

No U.S. forces were injured by the 16 short-range ballistic missiles fired from three sites inside Iran, targeting two military bases in Iraq where U.S. armed forces are stationed.

However, as he was readying to make a statement on the Iranian strike on Wednesday, POTUS urged those countries that remain in the nuclear accord with Iran to pursue negotiations over a new Iran deal on the country's nuke programme.

Former Trump senior economic adviser Stephen Moore told The Epoch Times exclusively that energy independence is a national security priority.

Ipsos further found that more than two-thirds of Americans believe Iranian-linked attacks on US interests in the Middle East are more likely as a result of the Soleimani killing and its aftermath, with 63 percent telling posters they believe the likelihood of terrorist attacks on home soil has risen.

Mr Geng called on global society to uphold the agreement in a bid to ease the situation.

Michel also told reporters he wants to the European Union to play a stronger role in the Middle East.

Iraq's military said it also sustained no casualties.

He blasted the administration for what he called a shoddy briefing on the president's strategy on Iran, delivered in what he described as an "insulting and demeaning" way by administration officials he said were unwilling to engage in a genuine discussion about a possible military escalation in the Middle East. "He wants to have it both ways - that the United States can do whatever it wants, wherever it wants, whenever it wants, but that we can still call on allies to support policies in which they have had no input or some cases have had grave doubts about".

"The time has come for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, and China to recognise this reality".

While he said Trump didn't ask for Canada, specifically, to increase its military presence in the Middle East, Trudeau said the two leaders talked about the importance of continuing their efforts to stabilize Iraq and prevent the re-emergence of ISIS in the region.

An Iranian army spokesman denied "foreign media reports" suggesting there was some kind of coordination between Iran and the United States before the attack to evacuate bases. It was endorsed by the United Nations.

Speaking to reporters at the White House during an unrelated event, Trump said the USA had tamped down Islamic State militants, eliminating their control of territory and killing IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

A year later, Iran said it would withdraw partially from the deal. Though Lee supported taking out Soleimani, he declared he's now in favor of the Democrats' recently introduced resolution on war powers, which is created to prevent President Donald Trump from further military action against Iran without explicit authorization from Congress. It's nevertheless notable, however, that Trump made a rather specific threat over the weekend, and as of the president's public remarks yesterday, he doesn't appear to have any intention of following through on that threat. "The destruction of ISIS is good for Iran, and we should work together on this and other shared priorities".

'It is a shell that has now been voided, but it remains a shell into which we can put substance again'.
