Did you create a Team Managed or a Company Managed project?
For Company Managed projects, the project is assigned a Permission Scheme. The Permission Scheme details who has what types of permissions in a project, including the permission to delete issues. You can find the details of the Permission Scheme assigned to your project by navigating to Project Settings > Permissions.
