Qatar denies involvement in Egyptian church attack
The ministry offered condolences to the families of the victims while noting that its position at the governmental and popular levels completely rejects all terrorist attacks regardless of motives. According to the ministry, these attacks contradict both Islamic and human principles.
Qatar additionally expressed denunciation and disapproval of claims that it was involved in the terrorist attack -- a claim that is predicated on the pretense that suspect Mohab Moustafa visited Qatar in 2015.
Ambassador Ahmed Al Rumaihi, director at the ministry's Information Office, stated that the claims are an attempt to cover up failures of designated authorities at the Arab Republic of Egypt.
Additionally, Al Rumaihi stated, the claims hurt attempts to deepen the ties between what he called two brotherly countries.
