Iran Condemns Sweden Truck Attack
Iran on Saturday condemned as terrorist a truck attack in Stockholm which killed at least four people and injured 17 others on Friday.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahran Qasemi sympathized with Swedish people and government on the sad occasion, IRNA news agency reported.
“Amid all the jubilation of some Western and Arab countries over US recent missile strike in Khan Shyknun region near Idlib in northern Syria which is by itself an effort to breathe new life to the dead bodies of terrorists, we are witnessing a criminal act conducted by one who has been nurtured by the dogmatic, lunatic and bloody ideologies in Europe,” he said.
The unbridled terrorism that some countries do not even hesitate to give their overt and covert support for, tend to have no human, ideological and geographical borders, the spokesman said.
“They cause insecurity and instability in the world,” he added.
He went on to say that uprooting the evil phenomenon of terrorism has no way but strong will, honest behavior and global consensus.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran as one of the victims of terrorism has spared no efforts to tackle terrorism over the past years, the spokesman said.
“Iran is quite ready to establish cooperation aimed at creating regional and international mechanisms to annihilate terror and violence across the globe and in the absence of insidious politicization of the issue,” he noted.
