In a statement late on Tuesday, Mousavi denounced the terrorist attack and said cooperation and synergy among all countries in the world, especially regional states, are the only way to fight the big phenomenon of terrorism in a fundamental way.
A group of heavily armed assailants attempted to storm the headquarters of Pakistan’s largest stock exchange on Monday, using firearms and grenades. The assailants initially threw a grenade before opening fire on a security post outside the building, killing two guards and a police officer. Several others sustained injuries.
Security forces, however, intervened and foiled the attack by killing all the four gunmen involved in the assault.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan later accused India of being responsible for the attack, saying, “There is no doubt that India is behind the attack”.
