TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s Foreign Minister condemned “all terrorist acts” on Thursday after a suicide bombing in Bulgaria killed seven people Wednesday.
“The Islamic republic, the biggest victim of terrorism, believes terrorism endangers the lives of innocents… is inhumane and so strongly condemns” it, the Arabic-language television channel Al-Alam cited foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast as saying. “Iran’s position is to condemn all terrorist acts in the world,” he added.
Earlier in the day, Iran’s state TV rejected accusations of Tehran’s involvement in the attack.
A commentary Thursday on the TV website called the claims by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and others “ridiculous” and “sensational.”
The website described the Israeli charges as attempts to discredit Iran and its allies such as Syria.
The bombing is the latest in a string of attacks and plots around the world that Israel has blamed on Iran.
