The Venezuelan Government rejected on Thursday the terrible blast that killed 83 people and injured 160 on Tuesday at the University of Aleppo in Syria.

In a communiqué, President Hugo Chávez's Government expressed "its strongest condemnation of the horrific terrorist attack" and sent "its heartfelt condolences to the Syrian people and Government, particularly to the victims' families and relatives of this coward crime," EFE cited.

The Venezuelan Government, which many a time has voiced support for Syrian President Bashar Al Assad, "reaffirmed, one more time, the strong bonds existing between Venezuela and the Syrian Arab Republic. Further, it ratifies its support for any initiatives and proposals intended to achieve peace in this brotherly country."
