According to a report by the Foreign Ministry’s website, as translated by IFP, Qassemi strongly condemned the recent shooting incident in a shopping center Munich, which killed at least 10 people, and expressed sympathy with the German nation and government.
“Today, the fight against terrorism, anywhere in the world and in any possible form, is a serious and immediate demand of the international community and human conscience and needs to be considered as top priority for all countries,” Qassemi said on Saturday, July 23.
“Killing the innocent and defenseless people has turned to another stigma in human history, and the only way out is relentless and inclusive struggle free from double standards,” he went on to say.
On Friday afternoon, a shooting incident in a crowded Munich shopping mall left 10 killed and 16 injured, three of whom are in critical conditions.
Munich police claims that the assailant has been an 18-year-old German-Iranian dual citizen.
