Iran's Foreign Ministry on Monday condemned the recent terrorist attack on a bus carrying a number of Iranian pilgrims in Iraq as "brutal."

In a statement on Monday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said that the Iranian Foreign Ministry and the country's embassy in Baghdad are seriously looking into the incident.

"The terrorist groups think that they can damage the strong bonds between the Iranian and Iraqi nations by committing such inhumane crimes, but they won't achieve their inauspicious goals," Qasemi was quoted as saying by the Foreign Ministry's website.

"Such disasters will strengthen the two nations' resolve to fully eradicate the remnants of criminals," he said.

According to Tasnim news agency, the terrorist bomb attack near the Iraqi city of Balad in Saladin Governorate on Sunday injured several pilgrims, including nine Iranians, three of whom are in critical condition.
