Baku-APA. Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has called on the countries of the world to unite against the spread of terrorism, APA reports quoting Press TV.

Referring to the recent bombing and shooting attacks in Norway that killed at least 76 people, Salehi said, "Unfortunately, terrorism has spread to the most stable European country these days; and statesmen should take the threat seriously and unite in the global fight against it.”

The Iranian foreign minister made the remarks in a meeting with outgoing Norwegian Ambassador to Iran Roald Naess in the capital, Tehran, on Tuesday.

During the meeting, Salehi also described Iran-Norway relations as "good" and called for more cooperation between the two states.

The Norwegian envoy, for his part, urged the enhancement of relations between Norway and the Islamic Republic.

On July 22, a massive bomb explosion rocked government headquarters in the Norwegian capital, Oslo. On the same day, a gunman opened fire on members of the youth wing of Norway’s Labor Party on nearby Utoeya Island.

On Saturday, the Iranian foreign minister condemned the attacks in Oslo, and extended condolences to the Scandinavian country.
