(MENAFN - Arab News) Egypt has expressed its gratitude toward the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah for his staunch support to Egypt in its fight against terrorism.
The Egyptian Embassy in Riyadh said in a statement on Thursday that the Kingdom has been supporting Egypt in its hour of need and is the leading force among the Arab nations to stand beside its brethren.
The statement recalled the Saudi support in October 1973 when the late King Faisal stood firmly behind Egypt in the war with Israel displaying solidarity and again during the 1990's Gulf war when both countries stood together for a cause.
The Egyptian Embassy said that "Egypt values Saudi support based on a consensus between the two countries and aims to prevent any attempt to destabilize the region." It further said that Egypt is determined to progress toward democracy and will follow the road map charted after the June 30 revolution.
The Kingdom vowed full support to Egypt in going ahead with its political road map, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
