Iranian Foreign Minister said that the mass funeral of martyred Lieutenant General Ghasem Soleimani in Iraq showed that the end of US malign presence in West Asia has begun.

Iran Press/Iran news: "24 hrs ago, an arrogant clown— masquerading as a diplomat— claimed people were dancing in the cities of Iraq. Today, hundreds of thousands of our proud Iraqi brothers and sisters offered him their response across their soil," Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a tweet on Saturday.

"The end of US malign presence in West Asia has begun," he added according to Iran Press.

Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis joined the funeral procession for Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani and Iraqi anti-terror forces chief Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in Baghdad. 

The US assassination of the two commanders at Baghdad airport in the early hours of Friday has triggered a wave of rage among Iranians and Iraqis and forged an unprecedented unity with vociferous calls for revenge.
