Russia's G8 partners expressed sincere condolences over Monday's twin blasts in the Moscow subway, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.
The foreign ministers of G8 countries, who met in Canada's Gatineau, adopted a joint statement condemning the two suicide bomb attacks that killed at least 38 people and injured more than 70.
"There are no reasons to suspect [them] of being insincere. We are not the only [country] to have faced such calamity... Other G8 countries also had terrorist attacks on their territory," he said.
The first blast took place at 7:52 a.m. (03:52 GMT) at the Lubyanka station of the Moscow metro near the former KGB headquarters, which now houses the Federal Security Service. The second bomb was detonated some 40 minutes later four stops along the line at Park Kultury station, which is also within walking distance of the Kremlin.
World leaders, heads of international organizations and Russian religious figures have condemned the attacks.
