UK Minister for the Middle East, the Rt Hon Hugh Robertson expresses sympathy for the three UAE citizens injured in London

UK Minister for the Middle East, the Rt Hon Hugh Robertson said today:

I would like to express my personal sympathy for the three victims of the attack in London on 6 April. My thoughts are with the victims and their families. I spoke to the United Arab Emirates Deputy Foreign Minister HE Dr Anwar Gargash today to assure him that this is a priority for the UK Metropolitan Police, and that the excellent co-operation between the UK and Abu Dhabi Police will continue. Attacks of this nature are, fortunately, rare in London. We will do everything within our power to bring the perpetrators to justice.
