Erbil, Kurdistan Region, Iraq (cabinet.gov.krd) – In a statement, Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Tehran.
Below is the text of Prime Minister Barzani’s statement:
I strongly condemn the terrorist attack that targeted Iranian parliament and Imam Khomeini shrine, earlier today in Tehran.
The people of Kurdistan have been and are at the forefront of the war against terrorism, from which they have greatly suffered. Therefore, they understand the suffering of the families of the victims, the people and government of Iran.
I extend my condolences to the families of the victims, the people and the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and wish a speedy recovery for the wounded victims.
Terrorists, wherever they are, take advantage of any opportunity to carry out their malicious and evil plans and do not hesitate to kill innocent people regardless of their religious belief or nationality.
As terrorist attacks continue to rise in many places across the world, the international community has to take stronger measures and adopt greater cooperation in order to confront terrorism and its ideology.
Once again, we express our sorrow and share the pain of the families of the victims and the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Kurdistan Regional Government
