In a statement on Sunday, Khatibzadeh expressed deep regret at the deaths of scores of Sierra and condoled with the Sierra Leonean government and people and families of victims.
A fuel tanker exploded following a collision in the capital of Sierra Leone, Freetown, killing at least 99 people and injuring dozens of others.
The explosion took place late on Friday after a vehicle struck the tanker in Wellington, a suburb just to the east of Freetown.
Victims included people who had flocked to collect fuel leaking from the ruptured vehicle.
