Larijani condoles with France, Lebanon on deaths caused by terror attacks

Iran has always condemned terrorist attacks in any form and in any region, Ali Larijani said.

Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani expressed condolences to the French and Lebanese parliaments over the deaths caused by terror attacks in the countries.

The top MP also sent separate messages of condolences to his French and Lebanese counterparts as well as to the secretary general of the Lebanese Hezbollah.

Larijani called for a collective international campaign in the fight against terrorism.

In a message to French National Assembly President Claude Bartolone, Larijani deplored the terrorist attacks as crimes against humanity.

He denounced the inaction of the international community in the face of the menace of terrorism and said that unfortunately, the world has seen such inhuman crimes for several years.

The massacre of defenseless people, insecurity and unrest requires the world community to adopt a decision to fight the ominous phenomenon, he said.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always voiced outrage and condemned terrorist attacks in any form and in any region,” he said and stressed the need for countries and nations to take collective measures to confront terrorist acts.

He extended condolences to the French nation, parliament and government and expressed hope that the international community will fight terrorism to bring about stability and security to all nations.

He also condemned the terrorist attack in southern Beirut, which led to the martyrdom and injury of a group of innocent people.

Larijani sympathized with the families who lost their loved ones in the terrorist attacks.

“Such hateful crimes show once again the need for unity and collective steps to fight extremism and terrorism.

“The blood of the dear martyrs will lead to stronger resolve of the brave people of Lebanon and Muslim nations to continue the campaign until the elimination of terrorism.”
