Iran condemns UK attack, criticizes Western security ties to GulfIran condemned a suicide attack at a pop concert in Manchester that killed 22 people, but in an apparent swipe at Western security cooperation with Gulf Arab states said “artificial alliances” would not eliminate such threats. “Terrorism will be uprooted only by taking comprehensive measures, and avoiding double standards,” foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi was quoted as saying by state news agency IRNA on Tuesday. “Artificial alliances would not stop the expansion of cancerous terrorism in the world.” Monday’s attack at a concert by U.S. singer Ariana Grande in the English city of Manchester killed at least 22 people and wounded 59.
