The United Arab Emirates has condemned the terrorist attack on a tourist bus near the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Egypt.

A statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, MoFAIC, said that the UAE strongly condemns this criminal act that threatens the security and stability of Egypt. It also expressed the UAE’s position of solidarity with the government and people of Egypt in their fight against violence and extremism.

The Ministry statement said that such cowardly acts of terrorism will not undermine the resolve of the Egyptian people and their insistence on continuing to confront terrorism without reservations.
