“Please accept sincere sympathy and support for the relatives and friends of those who perished and wishes of early convalescence to all survivors of this calamity,” Putin said in a message published on the Kremlin’s website, IRNA reported.

Putin expressed to Rouhani, “deep condolences over the heavy loss of human life and destruction in the west of Iran.”
