‘General Soleimani was no friend of the U.K.’: British defence minister

U.K. Defence Minister Ben Wallace addressed British Parliament on Jan. 7, providing the House of Commons with an update on the Iran conflict. He said Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, who was recently killed in a U.S. airstrike, was "no friend of the U.K." or their allies in the region, and that Soleimani didn't advocate peace in the Middle East.
