Interpol has rejected Iran's request to arrest U.S. President Donald Trump for murder.

Iran issued an arrest warrant for the president who is charged with the assassination of its top commander, Gen. Qasem Soleimani, in a drone strike in January.

Interpol resoundingly rejected Iran's request to arrest Trump and turn him over to them for prosecution.

In a statement to CNBC late Monday, Interpol said:

"Under Article 3 of INTERPOL's constitution 'it is strictly forbidden for the Organization to undertake any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character.'"

Interpol added, "in accordance with the provisions of our constitution and rules, INTERPOL would not consider requests of this nature."

Interpol can enable local law enforcement to arrest international criminals in countries outside of the requesting country's jurisdiction.

Iran also named 35 other people alongside Trump who are accused in the plot to kill the 62-year-old general. Like Trump, those people also face "murder and terrorism charges."

Iranian officials have been accused of interfering in the upcoming U.S. elections by issuing an arrest warrant for Trump.

U.S. Special Envoy for Iran, Brian Hook, called the Iranian announcement a "propaganda stunt that no-one takes seriously."
