The Kazakhstan’s head of state expressed deep regret over “the many deaths and injuries as a result of the terrorist attacks in the country's parliament building and in the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini in Tehran”, and expressed his condolences to the families and friends of the victims on behalf of the people of Kazakhstan and on his own.
