Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud said his country stands with Egypt against terrorism, in a televised speech on Friday.
He asked all Egyptian fronts to take a “one-man-stand” against those who try to “unsettle a historical country in the Arab and Islamic world.”
He also said the kingdom stands with Egypt’s lawful right to fight terrorism, and against anyone who tries to interfere in its internal affairs.
Presidency media adviser Ahmed El-Moslimany said Egypt will never forget this historic stand by King Abdallah, stating that Egypt and Saudi Arabia will always remain allies.
The Egyptian cabinet, in an official statement, thanked the Saudi King for his “honourable” stand.
