In a Thursday statement, Qassemi condoled with the Iranian nation, especially the families of those martyred, and wished speedy recovery for those injured in the “cowardly” attack which killed and wounded several innocent Iranian people.
“The terrorists who carried out the malicious and inhumane attack on Chabahar trade zone today had been propped up in the bosom of certain countries and centres promoting violence and extremism in the region,” Qassemi said.
He noted that the attack was aimed at portraying Chabahar as insecure, and harming the region’s economic development, which is underway in cooperation with regional countries.
According to Qassemi, the region’s development is particularly important as it contributes to economic prosperity, security, and stability in the country’s eastern borders.
“The violent death-mongers who take orders from notorious centres will soon be severely punished for committing this crime, no matter where they are,” he vowed.
