In a statement on Thursday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi offered condolences to the Indian government and nation, and sympathized with the families of victims of the tragic incident.

"As a country that has been a victim of terrorism and has taken major and effective steps to root out terrorist groups in the West Asia region and has paid heavy costs and is resolved to keep up this path with strong determination, we believe using such bloody and inhumane methods by any group and with any motive and under any name is unacceptable," the spokesman underlined.

At least 40 Indian paramilitary police were killed in a bomb attack by militants on their convoy in Indian-administered Kashmir on Thursday.

Police said a car filled with explosives had rammed a bus carrying the troops to Srinagar.

Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad group said it was behind the attack.
