Venezuela sympathizes with the Islamic Republic of Iran before a terrorist attack

This Saturday, the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, made a statement in rejection of the terrorist attack against the sisterly Islamic Republic of Iran, issuing on behalf of the Bolivarian people and Government, the most sincere condolences and solidarity with the Persian country through an official announcement.

The terrorist act occurred during the military parade of Ahvaz, on the occasion of the Week of Sacred Defense, which is commemorated every September 22, date on which the war that confronted Iran with Iraq between 1980 and 1988 began.

The attackers opened fire from a nearby building and behind the government platform against the public present and against the Iranian army units that were marching past, leaving dozens dead and wounded, including women and children.

The Venezuelan President in his official statement said that, “Venezuela communes with all the people of the world in the idea that peace is the only way for humanity, reason why it repudiates any act of terrorism and adds itself to the international denunciation against the world powers that encourage these practices against those considered as their adversaries, threatening peace and world security”.
