The Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Marzieh Afkham condemned the recent terrorist attack in Afghanistan’s eastern city of Jalalabad which killed a number of people on Sunday.
Afkham condoled with families of martyrs and expressed sympathy with those who survived the terrorist act.
She added that terrorism, extremism and endangering the lives of innocent people are unjustified and unacceptable.
Afkham also emphasized the need for fostering cooperation between the regional countries and the global community aimed at tackling terrorism and extremism.
She concluded that solidarity and unity of all ethnic groups are necessary to halt violence and extremism.
An explosion in Jalalabad killed at least 35 people and injured some 100 others.
An attacker riding a motorbike detonated his explosives as both military servicemen and civilians were waiting to receive their salaries from the bank.
This is while Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, spokesman for the provincial governor in Nangarha, said a separate explosion took place near a shrine in the city, in which no one was injured.
Taliban have rejected any role in the attack. However, Shahidullah Shahid, who has introduced himself as the spokesman for the ISIL terror group, has reportedly claimed responsibility for the incident in a text message to media, Afghanistan’s Khaama news agency reported.
