Tánaiste Condemns Cairo Bombings

Posted by African Press International on January 25, 2014

DUBLIN, Ireland, January 24, 2014/African Press Organization (APO)/ – The Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Mr Eamon Gilmore T.D., has condemned the series of bomb attacks which took place earlier today in Cairo and which has resulted in at least six deaths and approximately 100 people wounded.

“I condemn unreservedly today’s bombings and all such acts of terrorism. I extend my fullest sympathies, on behalf of the Government and Irish people, to the families of those killed and wounded and to the Egyptian people. Such acts are utterly reprehensible and serve only to deepen divisions within Egyptian society.”

“On the eve of the third anniversary of Egypt’s democratic revolution, I would call on all Egyptians to renew the spirit of national unity which inspired the peaceful protests of January 2011. It is vital that all Egyptians, at this critical time, should work together to promote reconciliation, dialogue and inclusiveness within their country in order to help further Egypt’s transition towards full democracy and build upon last week’s adoption of a new Constitution.”
