'Legality' of Soleimani killing is not UK's role: Johnson

Britain's Labour party grillied Prime Minister Boris Johnson over his handling of the Iran crisis.

'Legality' of Soleimani killing is not UK's role: Johnson

Johnson was also questioned over whether the British government believed the targeted killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in a U.S. air strike was legal.

Johnson responded that it wasn't the UK's role to decide the legality of the killing, as Britain did not conduct the strike.

The prime minister says his government is doing "everything we can" to de-escalate the crisis and protest UK interests.
