Qatar denounces claims of involvement in terrorist attack on Coptic Cathedral in Cairo

Qatar denounces claims that it was involved in terrorist attack: Qatar’s Foreign Ministry expressed its “denunciation and disapproval of tendentious claims that the State of Qatar was involved in the condemned terrorist act [on the Coptic Cathedral in Cairo], on the pretense that the suspect … paid a visit to Qatar in 2015.” The ministry also condemned the terrorist attack itself. Ahmed Al Rumaihi, a spokesman for the Qatari foreign ministry, said “dragging the name of Qatar under any pretense to cover up on failures of designated authorities at the Arab Republic of Egypt incites the feeling of brotherly peoples and doesn’t help in deepening the ties between brotherly countries,” adding that the suspected suicide bomber visited Qatar “on an entry visit visa in accordance to the legal procedures” and left the state two months after. Al Rumaihi also said that the “brotherly ties between the Qatari and Egyptian people will remain deep-rooted regardless of any baseless claims.”
