Baku-APA. Russia on Monday condemned the latest terrorist attacks in Iraq which have killed at least 80 people, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

"Moscow strongly condemns these bloody crimes, expresses condolence to the victims’ families, wishes sooner recovery of the wounded ones," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted on its website. "New tragic events on the Iraqi soil once again stressed the need to constantly counter terrorism which could not have any justifications."

Russia supported the efforts of the Iraqi government to stabilize the situation and enhance security in the country, said the statement, urging all Iraqis to close ranks and fight against terrorism.

"The reliable barrier (to terror threats) should be erected through a national accord based on a wide dialogue with participation of major political forces and ethnic-confessional communities of Iraq," said the ministry.

A series of attacks across Iraq on Monday killed at least 80 people and wounded some 282 others in a deadliest day in two years that shortly followed the local al-Qaida militant group’s warning that it would start a new round of violence in an attempt to retake their previous strongholds.
