Saudi Arabia vows to back Egypt in its fight against 'terrorism'
Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah reiterated the stance of the Government and the people of Saudi Arabia to support the brothers in Egypt against terrorism and sedition.
The King made these remarks during talks with visiting Egyptian President Adly Mansour at his palace here on Monday.
The Egyptian interim president thanked the King and the people and the Government of Saudi Arabia for supporting the will of the Egyptian people and helping Egypt overcome its economic crisis.
“Visiting the Kingdom was a must, as I had to thank Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah personally on his supportive stances that comforted the Egyptians,” Mansour told Arabic language daily Asharq Al-Awsat.
Riyadh had announced an aid package of $5 billion to Egypt.
King Abdullah in August pledged his country’s support to Egypt’s fight on terrorism.
In his interview with Asharq Al-Awsat published on Monday, Mansour hailed the Kingdom’s support to his government at a “time when many Arab states took a reserved stance or adopted the opposing view.”
