Iran condemns terror attack on school in Pakistan

Tehran (ISNA) - Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned a deadly terrorist attack on a school in the Pakistani city of Peshawar, which killed and injured a number of citizens, including children.

In a statement on Tuesday, Khatibzadeh said the killing of innocent civilians, including defenceless children, indicates that the perpetrators of such terrorist activities do not respect any moral and humanitarian principles.

The spokesperson also described the targeted acts of terrorism in a number of neighbouring countries in recent weeks as part of the vicious plots to escalate the sectarian and religious conflicts in the region.

He also called for vigilance, collective efforts and concerted action by all regional governments to deal with the problem.
