Tehran, Nov 29, IRNA -- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a message said that the assassination of Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh indicates the warmongering nature of its perpetrators.
The terrorists murdered a great Iranian scientist, Zarif wrote in his Twitter account on Sunday.
This cowardice, with serious signs of Israel's role, illustrates the warmongering of its desperate perpetrators, he added.
Iran calls on the world community, including the EU, to abandon the double standard and condemn this state terrorism, he noted.

Zarif had earlier released message in Russian, English, Arabic, German and Chinese languages informing the world of the terrorist crime and has urged the international community to hold responsible perpetrators.
