Iran condemns terror explosions in Syria’s Damascus

TEHRAN, Feb. 22 (Xinhua) — Iran’s foreign ministry condemned recent terror explosions in the Syrian capital of Damascus, Press TV reported Friday.

In a statement released Thursday, Iran’s foreign ministry expressed sympathy with the relatives of the victims, saying that ill-wishers of the Syrian nation are worried about the return of calm and stability to the country and view the national reconciliation against their aims and desires, according to the report.

On Thursday, a suicide car bomber detonated his explosive-laden car at a busy intersection in the heart of Damascus near the headquarters of the ruling al-Baath party, killing more than 53 people, according to Syria’s state-media.

The statement added that through persistent terror acts, the foreign-sponsored terrorist elements are attempting to maintain a fearful setting in the country and block the realization of political reforms and improved stability and security across the nation.
