The United Arab Emirates has strongly condemned the attack targeting a military site in Niger, which resulted in numerous deaths and injuries.
In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation affirmed that the UAE expresses its strong condemnation of this criminal act and utter rejection of all forms of violence and terrorism aimed at undermining security and stability in contravention of religious and human values and principles.
The ministry also expressed its sincere condolences and sympathy to the families of the victims of this heinous crime and its wishes for a speedy recovery for all the injured.
Niger on Sunday said 89 of its troops and 77 assailants died in the raid on the base at Chinegodar.
It was the biggest one-day loss in the history of Niger, an impoverished country in the heart of the Sahel region which is struggling with a mounting militant insurgency.
