TEHRAN, AUG. 5 — Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Sunday condemned the assassination attempt of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
The failed bid was aimed at spreading insecurity and instability in the South American country, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said.
“We regard this measure as a move in line with causing instability and insecurity in this country and in the interests of enemies of the Venezuelan government and people, and strongly condemn it,” Qasemi said according to Press TV.
Drones armed with explosives were detonated near Maduro in an apparent assassination attempt that took place while he was delivering a speech to hundreds of soldiers. Maduro was unhurt. – XINHUA
