President Rouhani referred to the Friday attack on Iranian technicians working on the Iran-Iraq gas pipeline in Diyala which left 22 dead, including 20 Iranian national, and said, “Such actions are planned not just against the Iraqi people, but also against the Muslim world and all the people who render service to the Iraqi nation.”
president said the Friday killing of more than a dozen Iranians in a terrorist attack in Iraq was aimed at sowing discord and hindering development and progress in Iraq as well as undermining growing Tehran-Baghdad relations.
president further stated that the attack showed that “extremists and terrorists are targeting financial and spiritual interests of various Iraqi sects and religions.”
He deplored the countries which support terrorist groups and criminals in the region, and said, “Those who have created crisis in the region by sending weapons, and equipping and training terrorists will finally be entangled in their terrorist-training measures.”
President Rouhani called on the Iraqi government to ensure the security of Iranian contractors and firms in Iraq and stressed that countries involved in such terrorist incidents must be held accountable for their actions.
The Iraqi premier, for his part, offered his condolences to the Iranian people over the deadly attack and said such incidents are rooted in sectarianism.
Maliki added that he has ordered more protection for Iranians in Iraq, emphasizing that terrorists would fail to undermine the determination of Iranians and Iraqis for stronger cooperation.
