Summary: 11 July 2015, Brussels – Statement by the High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini on the attack in Cairo, Egypt.
Once again Egypt is under attack, once again Europeans have been hit by terrorists. The attack, which killed at least one and wounded many others in front of the Italian consulate in Cairo during the holy month of Ramadan, is another attempt to defy the Egyptian and European resolve to fight terrorism.
My thoughts go to the families of the victims, to the Egyptian and Italian authorities and people. We will remain united in facing the common threat of terrorism.
We stand by the Egyptian authorities in their efforts to fight terrorism and bring the perpetrators of this attack to justice.
