Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has sent a condolence cable to President Maithripala Sirisena of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka over the acts of terrorism carried out during Easter celebrations, which left hundreds of innocent people dead or injured.
“I express my deepest condolences to you and to the friendly people of Sri Lanka on the horrific terrorist acts perpetrated during Easter celebrations that left hundreds of innocent people dead or injured," the Armenian prime Minister wrote.
"The Republic of Armenia strongly condemns these appalling crimes and reaffirms its commitment to counter the growing tide of evil with the international community," he added.
Nikol Pashinyan express his deepest condolences to the families of the victims, wishing them fortitude and endurance, as well as quick recovery to the injured.
At least 207 people have been killed and 450 hurt in explosions at churches and hotels in Sri Lanka, police say.
Eight blasts were reported, including at three churches in Negombo, Batticaloa and Colombo's Kochchikade district during Easter services.
The Shangri-La, Kingsbury and Cinnamon Grand luxury hotels, all in the capital, were also targeted.
