Serbia Stands By Iran in War on Terror: President

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic condemned the terrorist attack that killed scores of Iranians at a commemorative event in Kerman on January 3, saying his country stands by Iran in the fight against terrorism.

In a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart on Thursday, President Vucic condemned the acts of terror, expressing condolence on the part of the Serbian government and people with the Iranian government and nation.

He expressed hope that the masterminds and perpetrators of the terror attacks be immediately consigned to justice and face the legal implications of the atrocity.

The Serbian president also noted that his country stood by Iran's side in the fight against terrorism, Press TV reported.

The phone call came a day after two back-to-back explosions killed at least 89 people and wounded scores of others at a memorial ceremony that was being held for Iran's former senior anti-terror commander Lt. General Qassem Soleimani in the city of Kerman. The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the atrocity.

For his part, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi reiterated Iran's resolve to consign those behind the recent terrorist attack to justice.

"No degree of support or patronage from no power can provide a security margin to the agents that have been involved in this atrocity," Raisi said.

He asserted that cowardly measures such as this would not hold the great Iranian nation back from pursuing its high goals of confronting oppression, tyranny, and injustice.

Earlier, the United Nations Security Council released a statement, condemning the "cowardly terrorist attack" and condoling with the victims' families and the Iranian government.
