OPEC secretary general conveys condolences to Iran over terrorist attacks

SHANA (Tehran) – Secretary General of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) Haitham Al Ghais, in a message to Iran’s Oil Minister Javad Owji, extended his condolences to Iran on Thursday over the deadly terrorist attacks in the southeastern city of Kerman.

On Wednesday, two explosions killed dozens of people commemorating Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), who was assassinated in a U.S. drone strike in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on January 3, 2020.

The OPEC secretary general’s message reads:


I am writing to Your Excellency to express my deepest condolences to you, to the Government and to the people of the Islamic Republic of Iran following the devastating bombing yesterday. Words cannot convey the shock and sadness when we see the scope of destruction and hear of the number of lives lost and those wounded in the wake of this unimaginable and atrocious tragedy.

All our thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved and their families, with the Iranian people and with all those who are now tirelessly working to overcome the damages. I pray to Allah Almighty for the victims and I am confident that you will find the courage and strength to build up all that has been destroyed by this violent attack.

In deep sympathy, I would ask you to please accept, Excellency, the renewed assurances of my highest consideration and esteem.
