BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping sent a message of condolences to his Egyptian counterpart, Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, on Monday over the terrorist attacks that targeted two churches.

In his message, Xi extended his profound condolences to the innocent victims and sincere sympathies to al-Sisi, families of the victims, and the injured.

China opposes terrorism in all forms and strongly condemns the barbarous attacks, he said.

The Chinese people will stand firmly with the Egyptian people and resolutely support Egypt's efforts in safeguarding national security and stability, as well as the fight against terrorism, he added.
