"36 individuals who cooperated, collaborated, and participated in the assassination of Hajj Qassem, including political and military authorities of the US and other countries, have been identified", Alqasi-Mehr said on Monday, according to ISNA.

Iran said it issued an Interpol red notice for US President Donald Trump over the killing of Quds force commander Qassem Suleimani in January this year.

The others on the list, Iranian state media reported, were unnamed political and military officials from the USA and other countries that Tehran claimed had ties to the killing.

He said that Iran would continue to pursue Mr Trump and other officials even after their political term expires.

Recall that a USA airstrike had in January killed General Soleimani of the Revolutionary Guard's expeditionary Quds Force near Baghdad International Airport.

He was also quoted as saying Iran had requested a "red notice" be put out for Trump and the co-accused, the highest-level notice issued by Interpol.

Miffed with Soleimani's death, Iranian Revolutionary Guards vowed to attack Israel and other United States allies in revenge of USA action.

Interpol, based in Lyon, France, did not immediately respond to Iran's demand.

After receiving a request, Interpol meets by committee and discusses whether or not to share the information with its member states.
