ABU DHABI, 21st October, 2017 (WAM) -- The UAE on Friday condemned in the strongest terms the deadly terror attack in Egypt's Giza province, which resulted in the death and injury of dozens of Egyptian troops and police officers.
Dr. Anwar Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, assured that the UAE stood in solidarity with the Egyptian government in their fight to combat terrorism and extremism.
These acts seek to reek havoc for Egypt and its people, but it will not undermine the country's resolve to eradicate terrorism, Dr. Gargash added.
"We are confident that whoever intends for evil endeavours to occur on Egyptian soil will not succeed," he said, emphasising that "our Arab, Islamic and humanitarian responsibilities are clear in rejecting terrorist acts."
Dr. Gargash expressed the UAE's sincere condolences to Egypt's government, people, and families of the martyrs, wishing a speedy recovery to the wounded.
