China condemns Israel strike on Iranian consulate in Syria

TEHRAN, Apr. 02 (MNA) – China on Tuesday said it condemned Israeli air strikes that destroyed Iran's consular building in the Syrian capital of Damascus.

"China condemns the attack," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said.

"The security of diplomatic institutions cannot be violated, and Syria's sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity should be respected," he said.

"The current situation in the Middle East is turbulent and we oppose any actions that lead to an escalation of tensions," Wang said, L'Orient Today reported.

The Israeli regime attacked Iran's consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus on Monday evening. The Israeli aggression led to the destruction of the entire building and the martyrdom and injury of the entire people inside it.

Seven of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) military advisors were martyred following the Israeli attack on Iran's consulate in Damascus on Monday, IRGC said in a statement.

Reacting to the Israeli aggression, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kan'ani on Monday night said that the Islamic Republic of Iran, while reserving its rights to take countermeasures, decides on the type of reaction and punishment of the aggressor.

Earlier on Monday, Iran's Ambassador to Syria stressed that the country will give a decisive response to the Israeli regime.
