Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh strongly condemned the terrorist attack on a mosque at a Shia mosque in the Afghan city of Kunduz that killed at least 55 people Friday.
Khtibzadeh censured any form of terrorist acts made by any side, according to the Foreign Minsitry official website.
The blast was the bloodiest assault since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in August.
Khatibzadeh extended his sympathy to the families of the victims of the tragic event and wished quick recovery for the injured.
Matiullah Rohani, director of culture and information in Kunduz for Afghanistan's new Taliban government, confirmed to AFP that the deadly incident was a suicide attack that left over 140 wounded.
Residents of Kunduz, the capital of a province of the same name, said the blast hit the mosque during Friday prayers.
