TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Iranian FM Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi strongly condemned the terrorist blast in Lahore, Pakistan, which led to killing and injuring tens of people, and sympathized with their families.
He asserted that resorting to violence and terror is generated from a decadent ideology which has nothing to say but with the language of coercion and unbridled violence.
“We believe that the only way to get free from the terror and violence wave in the region and world is to honestly encounter the sinister phenomenon and to avoid instrumentally using terrorism and trading terrorism for political goals and within the framework of double standards” he stressed.
On Monday, a suicide bomber struck near a police team in Lahore, killing at least 26 and wounding another 54, many of them police officers.
Senior police officer Haider Ashraf said a suicide bomber on a motorcycle targeted police guarding a demolition site at Kot Lakhpat's vegetable market on the outskirts of Lahore.
