Vladimir Putin sent a message of condolences to President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hassan Rouhani following terrorist attacks in Tehran.

The head of the Russian state resolutely condemned these crimes, which had once again corroborated the need to step up international cooperation in fighting terrorism, and confirmed Russia’s readiness for further joint actions with its Iranian partners in this area.

Vladimir Putin conveyed words of empathy and support to the families of those who died in the attack, and wished speedy recovery to the wounded.
