Tehran, June 29, IRNA - Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Mohsen Baharvand said on Monday that Iran identified 40 Americans who had been involved in the assassination of Iran's anti-terror commander Lieutenant-General Qasem Soleimani.

The high-ranking diplomat added that a number of other people, including several US drone operators, have not been identified, who will be identified soon.

The country will not stop trying to bring the culprits to justice, he further noted.

The official pointed out that Iran will pursue the issue in international bodies and organizations.
