TEHRAN, Nov. 30 (MNA) – Officials from the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic have deplored a terrorist attack, which led to the martyrdom of top Iranian physicist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

In a phone call with Seyyed Ahmad Hosseini, Iran’s Consul General in the autonomous republic, the First Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Majlis of Nakhchivan Azer Zeynalov condemned the “cowardly” terror attack and expressed sympathies with the Iranian government and nation.

In a separate phone call, Vesal Ali Akbarli, the head of the Azerbaijan Republic’s foreign ministry office in Nakhchivan, also offered his solemn condolences on the heinous attack to the Iranian nation and the bereaved family of the martyred scientist.
