Summary: 1 July 2015, Brussels – Statement by the High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini on the terrorist attack in northern Sinai, Egypt

“An ongoing terrorist attack against military posts in northern Sinai has caused a high number of casualties. We express our condolences to the families of the victims and the Egyptian authorities. Our thoughts are with the Egyptian people.

Violence and murder are the means the terrorists use to try to undermine our societies, in Europe, in Africa, in the Middle East. We will remain united in tackling this common threat and together with all those who respect the value of life.

As the EU, we are steadfast and resolute in our support for the people and government of Egypt in the fight against terrorism.

The perpetrators and sponsors of this attack must be brought to justice.”
