By Fatih Karimov - Trend: Iran continues diplomatic talks on different levels regarding causes of the Mina tragedy, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said.
He underlined that the administration is aware of its responsibilities about Mina disaster, Iran 's State IRINN TV reported Oct. 5.
On Sept. 24, a stampede occurred in the Mina valley, where Muslims were performing the Hajj rites. According to the latest reports, 465 Iranian pilgrims were among those who lost their lives in the Mina stampede.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Rouhani touched on the nuclear deal, saying that he will respond to critics of the deal. "The deal has been second to none over the past 100 years," he added.
