Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini here on Thursday strongly condemned assassination of Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto who was killed in a suicide attack at a campaign rally.

Speaking to IRNA, he strongly condemned the terrorist act which might have been perpetrated by any person, political parties or groups.

The terrorist and criminal act aimed to disrupt calm in the neighboring and Muslim country, Hosseini said.

Hosseini also expressed the sympathy of the Iranian government and nation to the Pakistani government, nation and the relative of Benazir Bhutto on the tragic event.

"We hope the Pakistani government will identify and bring to justice those behind such a criminal act and restore tranquility to the country," he underlined.

He expressed the hope that the Pakistani political parties and nation will help the Pakistani government to restore stability and tranquility to the country.

Continued uproars and unrest in the country is not to the benefit of the Pakistani people and would leave negative impact on stability and security of the regional countries, he said.

Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was shot dead on Thursday at a campaign rally.
