Iranian Parliament Speaker Gholam Ali Haddad Adel here on Friday strongly condemned the terrorist attack on Iraq’s National Assembly.
In a message addressed to Iraqi Parliament Speaker Mahmoud al-Mashhadani, Haddad Adel voiced regret over the terrorist blast at the Iraqi parliament, which claimed the lives and wounded a number of the respectable Iraqi parliament deputies, saying that the event has saddened him profoundly.
“This terrorist incident, in which the enemies of the Muslim Iraqi nation have targeted the parliament and representatives elected by the people as a symbol of national unity in that country, shows that enemies of the Iraqi people are fearful of the success of this national and popular experience (i.e. formation of the Iraqi parliament) and the progress of the political trend in Iraq,” he said.
The Iranian chief legislative official strongly condemned the terrorist attack and expressed his sympathy for the bereaved families of the victims.
He further reiterated, “I am confident that the Iraqi parliament will play very well its historical role in consolidating national unity and improving the political, social and security conditions as well as ending the occupation of Iraq by the aliens.”
To end his message, Haddad Adel asked God Almighty to bestow health and success on the speaker and other members of the Iraqi assembly and welfare, success and prosperity on the Muslim nation of Iraq.
