Iran has strongly condemned a massive terrorist bombing that rocked the Turkish town of Suruc, near the southern border with Syria.
This criminal act of terrorism once again showed that perpetrators of such crimes are not committed to any principle and will spare no effort to achieve their inhumane objectives, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said on Monday.
Iran believes that “blind terrorism” poses a serious threat to the region, she added.
At least 31 people were killed and more than 100 others wounded in the explosion that rocked the Amara Culture Center of the Suruç Municipality earlier in the day.
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told a news conference in Ankara that initial investigations suggest that the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group was behind the deadly bombing.
“Preliminary findings point to it being a suicide attack carried out by Daesh (ISIL),” Davutoglu said. “But we are not at a point to make a final judgment.”
In a telephone conversation with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan last week, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani underlined the need for the two country’s cooperation to uproot terrorism which is threatening the stability of the regional countries.
