  • [01] Greece condemns car bomb attack in Egyptian resort

  • [01] Greece condemns car bomb attack in Egyptian resort

    Greece has denounced car bomb attacks in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh in Eygpt that killed 88 people, also offering to send humanitarian aid.

    "These abhorrent terrorist attacks against your country, which have brought the death of many innocent citizens, are condemned by all in the most absolute and catergorical manner," the president of the republic, Karolos Papoulias, said on Saturday.

    In a telegram to Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, Papoulias expressed Greece's solidarity towards the Middle Eastern country and families of the victims.

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis sent a letter to his Egyptian counterpart expressing his abhorrence for the attacks, and lamenting the loss of innocent lives.

    "Greece totally condemns any act of violence and terrorism," the premier said.

    The leader of the main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement, George Papandreou, expressed solidarity with Mubarak and the victims' families over loss of life in the tragic attack.

    Foreign Minister Petros Molyviatis informed his Egyptian counterpart that humanitarian aid would be sent, if requested. He also repeated the government's commitment to combatting terrorism.

    Condolences were also sent by the Coalition of the Left, Movements and Ecology.

    "Unfortunately the cycle of violence and bloodshed has expanded, which has been decisively fuelled by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the Palestinian tragedy," a party spokesman said.

    The head of the Greek community in Cairo told the Athens News Agency in the Egytian capital that he also condemned the attacks, which also aimed to strike a blow at the country's tourism.

    Also sending condolences were the Patriarch of Alexandria, Theodorus II; and the head of Thessaloniki's Greek Community of Alexandria, Stefanos Tamvakis, who is also deputy president of the World Council of Hellenes Abroad.

    According to the Greek foreign ministry, no Greeks have been counted among the dead or injured.
