In reaction to the recent terrorist attack in southeastern Iran, Iranian Foreign Minister on Wednesday said that the timing of the terrorist attack against Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and the anti-Iran summit in Warsaw is not coincidental.

Iran Press/Iran news: Forthrightly condemning the suicide car bomb attack against a bus carrying IRGC personnel in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchistan on Wednesday, Mohammad Javad Zarif in a Twitter message raised suspicion about the deadly attack's possible links to the 'circus' in Warsaw, Iran Press News Agency reported.

The IRGC personnel were traveling on a road between the cities of Zahedan and Khash, in Sistan-Baluchistan province on Wednesday, when their bus was hit by a suicide car bomb attack.

The IRGC's Qods Headquarters said in a statement that an explosive-laden car rammed into the bus, which was taking the personnel back to their homes.

According to the statement, the attack killed 27 IRGC members and wounded 13 others.

The anti-Iran conference, organized by the US, kicked off in Warsaw on Wednesday, but US vice president Mike Pence, secretary of state Mike Pompeo, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will speak at the main session of the conference on Thursday.

The meeting, which has convened in the Polish capital, was announced by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last month.

Iran has already dismissed the Warsaw meeting, saying it is 'a failure in advance' given the low-level participation by global actors. 103/211/210
