Iran's Rouhani calls for global unity after Tehran attacks

AFP  |  Tehran 

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani called for "regional and international cooperation and unity" after 12 people were killed today in twin attacks on Tehran claimed by the Islamic State group.

"Iran's message as always is that terrorism is a global problem, and unity to fight extremism, violence and terrorism with regional and international cooperation is the most important need of today's world," Rouhani said in a statement.

"Undoubtedly, today's terrorist incidents in Tehran will boost Islamic Iran's determination in the fight against regional terrorism, extremism and violence," he said.

Iran "will once again prove that it will break any plots and machinations by ill-wishers with more unity and integrity and its powerful security structure."

Twelve people were killed and more than 40 wounded in the attacks on Tehran's parliament complex and the shrine of revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
