News ID: 4092817 -
TEHRAN, Sep. 20 (MNA) – Iranian foreign ministry spokesman has expressed his sympathy over the recent earthquake in Mexico, which has killed over 200 people.

In a Wednesday statement, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi offered sympathy to the bereaved families of the deadly earthquake victims in Mexico, which was still reeling from a fatal earthquake in the south of the country just two weeks ago.

The 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck southern Mexico on Tuesday, in Puebla state, 123km from Mexico City, killing at least 217 people. It was the most powerful earthquake since one which hit Mexico City on the same day in 1985, killing thousands and destroying a large part of the city.
