In a statement, Qassemi censured the attacks and expressed sympathy with the Iraqi government and people, especially the families and relatives of the victims of the terrible terrorist incident.
He once again reiterated Iran’s strong support for the resolute and constant struggle of the Iraqi government and people against terrorism, which according to him, is rooted in extremist thoughts of foreign-backed Takfiri-terrorist groups.
At least 35 people were killed by a double suicide bombing in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad according to authorities, although the death toll is expected to rise.
Scores of other people are said to have suffered wounds as a result of the explosion.
The interior ministry said that two men detonated suicide vests in Tayaran Square, following a similar attack in the city two days earlier which killed five at a checkpoint.
