The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today issued the following statement following two terrorist attacks in Tehran, Iran:
“Canada strongly condemns today’s terrorist attacks in Iran, including at their parliament. We grieve the deaths and the injuries sustained by many civilians and deplore the targeting of innocent Iranians. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the people of Iran.
“The timing of these attacks, during the holy month of Ramadan, is an offence to the spirit of this sacred time.
“Canada remains unwavering in the global fight against terrorism and the hatred on which it is based.”
