Chaba­har Ter­ror­ists Take Or­ders From No­to­ri­ous Cen­ters

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN (IFP) - For­eign Min­istry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi has con­demned the Thurs­day ter­ror­ist at­tack in the south­east­ern port city of Chaba­har, say­ing the ter­ror­ists are sup­ported by cer­tain no­to­ri­ous cen­ters in the re­gion.

In a Thurs­day state­ment, Qasemi con­doled with the Ira­nian na­tion, es­pe­cially the fam­i­lies of those mar­tyred, and wished speedy re­cov­ery for those in­jured in the “cowardly” at­tack which killed and wounded sev­eral in­no­cent Ira­nian peo­ple.

“The ter­ror­ists who car­ried out the ma­li­cious and in­hu­mane at­tack on Chaba­har trade zone to­day had been propped up in the bo­som of cer­tain coun­tries and cen­ters pro­mot­ing vi­o­lence and ex­trem­ism in the re­gion,” Qasemi said.

He noted that the at­tack was aimed at por­tray­ing Chaba­har as in­se­cure, and harm­ing the re­gion’s eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, which is un­der­way in co­op­er­a­tion with re­gional coun­tries.

Ac­cord­ing to Qasemi, the re­gion’s de­vel­op­ment is par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant as it con­trib­utes to eco­nomic pros­per­ity, se­cu­rity, and sta­bil­ity in the coun­try’s east­ern bor­ders.

“The violent death-mon­gers who take or­ders from no­to­ri­ous cen­ters will soon be se­verely pun­ished for com­mit­ting this crime, no mat­ter where they are,” he vowed.
