BEIJING, December 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has issued a condemnation of the acts of suicide bombing, which took place Sunday and Monday in the southern Russian city of Volgograd, taking a toll of 33 human lives and leaving about a hundred people wounded.“Member-states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization resolutely condemn the terrorist acts that took place December 29 and December 30, 2013, in Volgograd and that entailed numerous human casualties,” says a statement by SCO Secretary General Dmitry Mezentsev that the Itar-Tass Beijing bureau received Tuesday.
“The SCO expresses deep condolences to and sincere compassion for the families and relatives of the dead and wounded, as well as to the people and leadership of the Russian Federation,” the message says. “Any manifestations of terrorism and violence against peaceful civilians cannot be justified under whatever circumstances.
