UAE stands firm on supporting Somalia despite terrorist attack

Dr. Anwar bin Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, today condemned the heinous terrorist 
act in which the UAE aid convoy was targetted in the Somali capital of Mogadishu.

Affirming that the UAE aid workers travelling as part of the aid convoy were not wounded, Minister Gargash expressed deep sorrow and grief at the loss of lives of innocent Somalis in the attack and offered his profound condolences to families of the victims. He also wished speedy recovery to those injured in the accident.

''We are monitoring the situation and investigations into the accident,'' he said, emphasising that this terrorist act will not undermine the UAE's principled commitment to support Somalia and its people in their fight against terrorism.

''We will pursue our work diligently to support security, stability and development in Somalia,'' he stressed.

This cowardly terrorist act, he maintained, underscores the urgency of confronting terrorism with full force and of rallying all international efforts in the war against extremism and terrorism.
