Rouhani condoles Pakistani nation, government over Lahore attacks

Iranian President condoled Pakistani nation and the country's Prime Minister over Monday's terrorist attacks in Lahore that lead to the death of dozens of people.

Following is President Rouhani's letter:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

We are from Allah, and to Him we shall return

His Excellency Mr Nawaz Sharif

Honourable Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan

The news regarding terrorist blast in Lahore city and the killing of a number of our Pakistani brothers and sisters, especially children caused great grief and sorrow.

The Islamic Republic of Iran condemns any kind of terrorist attack and believes that violent behaviours and killing innocent people is done by those who see their survival in creating insecurity, instability and spreading hatred coupled with extremism.

I condole with Your Excellency and the great Pakistani nation, and express sympathy with the families of the victims of the calamity and pray the Almighty God for his blessings and heaven for those who were killed in the sorrowful calamity, swift recovery for the injured, and peace, pride and progress for the friend and brother Pakistani nation.

Hassan Rouhani

President of the Islamic Republic of Iran
