Press Release: Statement by IMF Managing Director Rodrigo de Rato on the Sharm el-Sheik Bombings in the Arab Republic of Egypt
July 25, 2005
"I am deeply saddened by the loss of life from the brutal attacks in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik. I want to extend, in my name and all members of the IMF, my sincere condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims, and to the people and government of Egypt. This is another horrific example of efforts to undermine freedom, peace and security. The IMF—as a key institution for multinational collaboration—will remain committed to doing its part in the fight against terrorism."
