TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossein Jaber Ansari has condemned a bomb attack in northwest Pakistan on Sunday.

“Terrorists seek to undermine peace and stability in Pakistan,” he said on Monday.
He said that such actions are targeted to fulfill needs of the enemies of Islam.

The Iranian official offered the Pakistani people and government condolences.

“We hope that such terrorist acts would not be repeated by adopting essential policies and strategies,” Jaber Ansari said.
