Washington, DC – The President of the National Iranian American Council, Trita Parsi, issued the following statement in response to the terrorist attacks on the Iranian Parliament and the Shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini in Tehran, which reportedly killed 12 and injured 42 people:
“Just a few days after the terrorist attacks on London the world is faced with yet another violent affront to peace. This time the the people of Iran have been terrorized. The National Iranian American Council condemns this violent and outrageous attack. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. We stand in solidarity with the Iranian people after this heinous crime.
“We urge President Trump, members of the U.S. Congress and all nations around the world to condemn the attack in solidarity with the Iranian people without delay, as European officials have already done. Terrorism respects no borders, and we remind the Trump administration that Iranians held vigils for the American victims of terrorism after the September 11th attacks.”
