Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi strongly denounced a suicide attack on a military base in Afghanistan, which killed and wounded dozens of people.
Qassemi condemned the deadly terrorist attack on Saturday, and expressed sympathy with the Afghan nation and government and the bereaved families of the victims of the inhumane incident.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran once again stressed the need for restoration of peace, stability, and security to regional countries, particularly Afghanistan,” he noted, according to the Foreign Ministry’s website.
Iran maintains that the only way to get rid of these problems is the non-interference of the US and foreign forces and negotiations between all Afghan groups and the country’s national unity government, he went on to say.
At least 140 people were killed and scores of others injured in the attack by Taliban militants on Friday.
