“Undoubtedly, the blasts were carried out with the purpose of causing disruption in the process of the peace talks and [preventing achievement of] any possible agreement,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Sunday.
He urged all Syrian sides to remain vigilant in dealing with such incidents at the current sensitive juncture.
Qassemi emphasized that in countering such “terrorist crimes,” the world has no option but to engage in a comprehensive and all-out campaign at political and cultural levels besides carrying out military measures.
The Iranian spokesperson also called for an international determination and consensus to root out terrorism and extremism in the region and across the world.
Qassemi also expressed sympathy with the Syrian government, nation and the bereaved families of the victims of the heinous terrorist crime in Homs.
At least 42 people lost their lives in simultaneous terrorist attacks on two security service bases in Syria’s third largest city of Homs on Saturday. Homs is largely under government control.
The Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
