Egypt condemned on Saturday a terrorist attack in Jordan a day earlier which left one policeman dead and six others injured in a bomb blast, a statement by the foreign ministry read.

The incident in Amman was caused by an IED which was planted near a police van, according to initial Jordanian investigations reported by Reuters.

Egypt expressed its sincere condolences to the Jordanian government and the family of the victim, and wished a speedy recovery to those injured.

“These terrorist acts will not discourage Egypt and Jordan from standing firm in the face of terrorism," read the statement.

The foreign ministry emphasised the need to take serious steps towards halting the financing, training, and provision of safe havens for terrorist groups.
