June 17, 2018 - 22:12

TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi has strongly condemned Saturday’s suicide attack claimed by the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group that killed and injured dozens of people in eastern Afghanistan.

In a statement released late on Saturday, Qassemi sympathized with the Afghan people and government over the deadly attack targeting Afghan and Taliban forces in the eastern city of Nangarhar, Tasnim reported.

The ill-wishers of the Afghan nation “did not tolerate the efforts to achieve a ceasefire and unity in the country and, by committing another crime, demonstrated that their existence hinges on crimes and divisions,” he said in the statement.
