Iran strongly condemns Kabul blast

IFP – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has vehemently condemned the latest bomb attack on a gathering of religious scholars in the Afghan capital Kabul which left tens of people dead and wounded.

In a Monday statement, Qassemi said the ‘dirty hand’ of warmongering terrorists committed another crime on a day during which religious scholars from all parts of Afghanistan had come together to hold talks on peace in the country and to condemn terror and violence.

Qassemi said the crime was carried out to prevent the righteous and peace-seeking voice of Afghanistan’s religious scholars from reaching the ears of Afghans and other nations.

He described the voice of the scholars as the voice of humanity, mercy, compassion and fight against animosity, violence, terrorism and suicidal moves.

The spokesman then extended sympathy with the Afghan government, nation and families of the victims of the heinous crimes and said creating a permanent peace in Afghanistan hinges on the unity and vigilance of the Afghan government and nation from all ethnic groups and religions.
