US Air Strikes: What The World Said
Friday 21 August 1998
Sudanese interior minister Abdel-Raheem Mohammed: "[The target of the bombing in Khartoum] is not chemical weapons, it is a factory for medical drugs. We have no chemical weapons factory in our country. We have no chemical weapons factories at all."
Prime Minister Tony Blair: "The atrocities this month in Nairobi, Dar es Salaam and Omagh have shown the pain and suffering that terrorism can bring to innocent people. I strongly support this American action."
Pakistan's Foreign Minister Satraj Aziz: "No facilities were provided by Pakistan. We are naturally against terrorism, but this kind of [US] intrusion appears to be unfortunate."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu : "The prime minister welcomes the US decision to strike targets of terrorists in Sudan and Afghanistan."
A 33-year-old Palestinian, Hussan Mustafa: "This is another American aggression against the Muslims."
'The Nation' newspaper of Kenya: "What they do is up to them ... we can't say good or bad. I think we are bystanders in this."
