Speaker: Iran sides with Afghanistan against terrorism
Tehran, June. 2,2017(IRNA)- Iran would continue support for Afghan people and government in fighting terrorism and establishing security and peace there, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said on Friday.
A huge explosion rocked Kabul's diplomatic area on Wednesday killing at least 100 and injuring 400 others. The blast took place near one of the national security offices and close to foreign embassies.
The explosion, later claimed by the Daesh (ISIS) terrorist group, was so powerful that the windows of the nearby buildings or those that were one km farther than the site of the blast have been broken.
The blast also shattered windows of the representative office of the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) located 500 meters from the site of the incident and happened 200 meters from Iran’s embassy in Kabul. The building was severely hit and the residence of Iran's ambassador was badly damaged.
In separate messages to Afghan Parliament Speaker Abdolraouf Ebrahimi and the country’s Senate Speaker Fazl Hadi Moslemyar, the Iranian speaker condemned the attack, adding that Iran will spare no effort help the Afghan nation.
Terrorism and extremism are big threats to peace and stability in the globe, Larijani added.
The speaker expressed solidarity with people and government of Afghanistan as well as the bereaved families of the victims.
