Stand with Egypt, urges King Abdullah

Riyadh, August 16, 2013

Saudi King Abdullah called on Arabs to stand together against "attempts to destabilise" Egypt, in a strong message of support for the country's military leadership read out on Saudi television on Friday.
 
"The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, its people and government stood and stands by today with its brothers in Egypt against terrorism," he said.
 
"I call on the honest men of Egypt and the Arab and Muslim nations ... to stand as one man and with one heart in the face of attempts to destabilise a country that is at the forefront of Arab and Muslim history," he added.
 
Saudi Arabia was a close ally of former president Hosni Mubarak and has historically had a difficult relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood. It pledged $5 billion in aid to Egypt after Mohammed Mursi of the Brotherhood was ousted from the presidency last month. - Reuters
