Remarks With Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy Before Their Meeting

John Kerry
Secretary of State
New York City
September 22, 2013


QUESTION: Mr. Secretary, what do you have to say to al-Shabaab after this weekend's attack?

SECRETARY KERRY: I’ll have something to say about it tomorrow, but obviously it’s an enormous offense against everybody’s sense of right and wrong. And President Obama talked today with the President; I talked with the Foreign Minister, our Ambassador. We’re in close touch with everybody there. But it’s – it represents the seriousness and the breadth of the challenge that we face with ruthless and completely reckless terrorists. So we’re going to proceed.

Thank you.
