The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday condemned the recent terror attacks in Iraq's Baghdad and sent condolences to families of the victims.

The foreign ministry said in a statement posted on its official website that Russia strongly condemns the series of crimes, which killed about 40 and injured over 80 people in various districts of Baghdad during the recent few days.

"We present condolences to the families of the dead and express our sympathy with the injured and their families," the statement said.

"We are confident that there is no excuse for terror acts, no matter which motives their organizers and perpetrators may refer to," it stressed.

The ministry said the suppression of terrorism requires more intensive efforts in the achievement of national accord based on a comprehensive inter-Iraqi dialog.

"This is the way to bring a normal life, security and stability to Iraq and to strengthen genuine sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity of the Iraqi state," it said.

A wave of bombings and shootings across Iraq in the past few days underscored the tenuous security situation months before the scheduled pullout of American forces. Although violence has plummeted since its peak in 2006 and 2007 when sectarian feud almost plunged the country into civil war, shootings and bombings still occur on a daily basis.
