In a message on Saturday, Ghasemi strongly condemned the
foiled terrorist attack on Grand Mosque in Mecca and said, "the imminent
attack once again demonstrated that terrorism has been steadily rising and
expanding, targeting the entire world, the region, and especially Muslims and
Islamic countries; terrorism is not associated with any religion, ethnic group
or sect and to achieve their sinister goals, terrorists even target the most
sacred places of Muslims in the world."
"Islamic Republic of Iran, once again, while warning
all governments and in particular the countries of the region on this hideous
and disgusting phenomenon, calls on all nations of the region to vigorously
pursue and combat the symbol of enmity, hatred, violence and crime," he
Ghasemi underlined that Iran condemns terrorism in any form,
anywhere and with any motives and is ready to help countries in countering
criminals and death traders.
Saudi Security forces foiled an imminent terrorist act on
Friday targeting the security of the Grand Mosque and worshippers by a group
stationed in three locations. One of the sites was in the province of Jeddah,
and the two others were in Mecca. One site contained the suicide bomber who
blew himself up and injured 11 people.
