Iranian Foreign Ministry' spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham extended Tehran's condolence to the Russian government and nation over the terrorist bombings.

Replying to a question regarding the terrorist attack in the Russian federation, Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesperson said that Islamabad opposes terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.

"We strongly condemn the terrorist attack at the train station of Volgograd which resulted in multiple deaths and injuries," the official said while extending condolences to the families of the victims.

On Sunday, a suicide bomber ripped a railway station in Volgograd, killing 17 people and injuring 45. Another bomb went off Monday morning in a trolley bus in the same city, leaving at least 16 dead and 28 wounded.

The blasts have drawn widespread international condemnation.
