Iran Condemns Terrorist Attacks in Pakistan

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian foreign ministry deplored the recent terrorist attacks in the two Pakistani cities of Ormara and Quetta which have killed several army personnel.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned the terrorist attacks on Pakistani troops in Ormara and Quetta over the past two days, expressing sympathy with the government and people of the country.

He rejected all forms of terrorism, stressing the need for the participation of all countries in the region in the ongoing fight against the perpetrators, organizers, supporters and sponsors of terrorist acts.

As many as 12 Pakistani army personnel were killed on Thursday in two separate attacks in Balochistan's Gwadar district and the North Waziristan tribal district.

In another incident, six Pakistan Army personnel were killed after an improvised explosive device (IED) exploded near the Razmak area of North Waziristan.
