We express our abhorrence and categorical condemnation of the heinous attack carried out today at the al-Rawdah mosque, near the city of El-Arish, in the North Sinai Governorate. We also express our concern at the repeated attacks on the religious communities of the Middle East and North Africa who experience the disastrous consequences of terrorism and religious bigotry.

Greece unequivocally condemns terrorism, whatever its source. We extend our solidarity to the friendly Egyptian people and convey the sincere condolences of the Greek people and the Greek government to the bereaved families. Once again, we reaffirm Greece’s unwavering support of human rights and religious freedoms, wherever they come under threat.
