Turkey condemns deadly terrorist attack in Iran

Iran's Revolutionary Guard said Sunday that those behind an attack on a military parade Saturday will face "deadly and unforgiving revenge in the near future".

Washington seeks to "create chaos and turmoil" in Iran so that the USA can "take charge" of the Islamic Republic, the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday, before leaving for NY to attend a UN General Assembly meeting.

The Revolutionary Guards are the most powerful and heavily armed military force in the Islamic Republic and also have a vast stake worth billions of dollars in the economy.

He also said Iran had warned the United Arab Emirates over "offensive remarks" attributed to a UAE "political advisor" following the attack.

Iran declared Monday to be a day of national mourning in which a funeral ceremony will be held for the victims of the attack. If it was IS, this attack would represent a failure by Iran's intelligence community to prevent a second IS attack in its soil.

"Speaking at a military rally in Tehran, he said Trump will fail in the "economic and psychological war" he's launched against Iran, just as Hussein failed in his 8-year war against the Islamic Republic".

Iran's state-run IRNA news agency says 20 people were wounded, including a woman and a child.

Iran in response summoned diplomats from Denmark, the Netherlands and Britain to complain about them "hosting some members of the terrorist group" and "double standards in fighting terrorism", the foreign ministry said.
