Iran has strongly denounced a bomb explosion at a market in northwestern Pakistan and a separate attempt to attack the Chinese consulate in Karachi.
In a Friday statement, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi expressed deep sorrow over the terrorist incident in Pakistan’s northwestern region of Orakzai, which left dozens of innocent people dead or wounded.
He also offered condolences to the Pakistani government and people as well as the victims’ families over the tragic incident.
The spokesman also denounced an attempt to attack the Chinese Consulate General in Pakistan’s Karachi.
He expressed pleasure that the attempt was aborted due to the vigilance and efforts of security forces and police, and that staff members at the diplomatic mission are in full health.
Ghasemi once again stressed the necessity of serious and collective efforts by all countries to fight terrorism and anti-human moves by terrorist groups.
