Wednesday, March 23, 2016

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has "firmly condemned" terrorist bomb explosions in the Belgian capital city of Brussels.

The Iranian president offered his deepest condolences to the Belgian government and people, particularly those who lost their loved ones.

Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also denounced Tuesday’s terrorist attacks in a phone conversation with his Belgian counterpart Didier Reynders.

Zarif said terrorism and extremism are global problems and tackling the two threats needs global action.

Earlier in the day, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hossein Jaberi Ansari, also condemned the twin blasts in Brussels, stressing the importance of adopting all-embracing efforts to fight terrorism which is threatening the entire world.

“Repetition of terrorist operations in different parts of the world is an indicator of the common threat [posed] by terrorism and extremism to the entire world,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hossein Jaberi Ansari, said.

He added that such terrorist incidents highlight the necessity of "integrated and overarching" action against the ominous phenomenon of terrorism as well as centers of political, ideological and financial support for terrorism.
