German-Iranian man shot himself dead after killing nine and wounding 16
The international community should make the fight against terrorism its main priority, Iran's foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Saturday.
The statement comes after an 18-year-old German-Iranian gunman killed nine people in Munich, then shot himself.
"Today, fighting terrorism, in any form and place, is an urgent demand of the world community ...that should be considered as the top priority by all countries in an international consensus," Qasemi was quoted as saying by state news agency IRNA, Reuters reports.
Nine people were killed and 16 wounded, three of them critically, at a shopping mall, police say.
No motive for the German-Iranian man's actions has yet been established.
The attack is the third on civilians in western Europe in eight days, following the violence in Nice and Wuerzburg.
