Iran denounces London terrorist attack

Iran has strongly condemned the recent deadly terror attack in the British capital London.

On Thursday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi called for the formation of a true international coalition against terrorists to replace the current “theatrical” ones.

The senior diplomat expressed Iran’s sympathy with the families of the victims as well as those injured in the brutal car-ramming and stabbing attack outside the UK Parliament in London.

Qassemi further emphasized the need for the formation of an all-inclusive global alliance aimed at “sincerely” fighting terrorism free from “double standards.”

 “No country can consider itself immune from terrorism and terrorists as long as we witness the [establishment of] inefficient and theatrical coalitions at international and regional levels to fight terror as well as the double standards being pursued by the Western countries in countering this heinous and inhumane phenomenon,” the Iranian diplomat further warned.

“Today, terrorism knows no borders,” said the Iranian official. “In order to uproot this evil and odious phenomenon, the channels for sending arms and equipment to the terrorists should be cut and the financial and moral support for the countries and groups disseminating terrorist ideas should be stopped.”

The Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the British Parliament attack in the heart of London that left at least four people dead, including the attacker.

The assailant plowed a car on Wednesday into pedestrians and stabbed a police officer, an incident that has been declared a terrorist incident.

It appeared to be the most serious such assault in London since the deadly subway bombings in 2005.

It is worthy to mention that Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic frequently used to denounce all forms of violence and terrorism. Imam maintained that the militant groups were playing into hands of vicious powers and posing serious challenges to the world peace and security.
