Iran condemns terrorist attack on tourists in Tajikistan

TEHRAN, Jul. 31 (MNA) – Bahram Ghasemi, the Spokesman of Iranian Foreign Ministry, condemned the Sunday terrorist attack which claimed the lives of 4 tourists in Tajikistan.

“We condemn all terrorist acts in all over the world, including the recent attack on foreign tourists in Tajikistan,” said Bahram Ghasemi, the Spokesperson of Iranian Foreign Ministry, on Tuesday.

The Iranian diplomat made the remarks in an announcement on the recent terrorist attack on a road about 150 miles south of the Tajik capital city of Dushanbe, which claimed the lives of four foreign cyclists. The ISIL later claimed responsibility for the attack.

Ghasemi criticized what was proposed, in an announcement issued by the interior ministry of Tajikistan, as Iran’s role in training terrorists for sabotage operations.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran dismisses any relevance with this terrorist attack and categorically denies that there is any military base to train terrorists inside Iran,” underlined Ghasemi.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to do any cooperation with the officials of Tajikistan to shed light on the dark dimensions of this attack,” he maintained.

The Iranian diplomat also added that ‘bringing up such baseless and groundless claims’ harms the brotherly and friendly relations between Iran and Tajikistan. He voiced hope that the two sides bolster bilateral ties and prevent foreign meddlers undermine the relations between Tehran and Dushanbe.
