[Ali Larijani, the Speaker of Iranian Parliament, downplays the terrorist attack against the Parliament building, in which 17 people were killed and many were injured.]
ALI LARIJANI asserts: They took some unimportant actions, but, of course, there was a serious confrontation with them. And I thank the respectable MPs who kept their calm and continued doing their jobs. This is an insignificant issue, but it shows that terrorists are after creating problems. And particularly because Iran is an active, influential pole in fighting terrorism, they want to create damages in this regard. Definitely, security forces will seriously confront them and, God willing, this problem will be solved.
