MOSCOW, July 4. /TASS/. Moscow condemns terrorist attacks in Bangladesh and Iraq and considers such actions as unacceptable, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.
"The president and the Kremlin convey their deepest condolences in regard to the terrorist attack that happened in Bangladesh. They condole with Italian people, Japanese people, people of Sri Lanka, as they lost their citizens in this terrorist attack," Peskov said. "The Kremlin decisively condemns this terrorist attack," he added.
"President (Vladimir) Putin also sent a telegram with condolences to Iraqi Prime Minister (Haider) al-Abadi regarding the absolutely inhuman act that took place yesterday in Baghdad," the Kremlin spokesman continued. "Once again, this is absolutely unacceptable," he noted.
The Russian president confirmed Moscow’s readiness to continue rendering assistance to the leadership and people of friendly Iraq in the fight against terrorism.
Putin conveyed words of sincere sympathy to the families and friends of those who died in the attacks wishing a speedy recovery to those injured.
Peskov reminded that Russia follows a consistent line of fighting against terrorism and is in solidarity with Iraqi people that "are subjected to such ferocious and brutal attacks by terrorists."
Twin bomb blasts rocked the al-Qarrada district in downtown Baghdad in the small hours of Sunday. According to AFP, over 200 people were killed and hundreds more injured. The Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization claimed the responsibility for the attack.
On the evening of July 1, a group of terrorists attacked a restaurant in Dhaka, which is very popular with foreign tourists. Among the guests were citizens of Italy, Japan, Argentina and India. Twenty visitors of the restaurant were killed, and some 40 people were injured. The police killed the attackers. The IS claimed responsibility for the attack. However, Bangladeshi authorities said that they believe local radical organization Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen was behind the attack.
