Mohamed ElBaradei, head of the National Association for Change and former director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, has said that the solidarity in Egypt between Muslims and Copts in response to the attack on the Two Saints Church in Alexandria showed the true spirit of patriotism.

He also described the terrorist atrocity that aimed to divide Egyptian society as a wakeup call for the country to confront the problems it faces.

His comments were part of a speech delivered during the "Voices of Solidarity" event held by his association for change at El-Sawy Culturewheel.

ElBaradei expressed his conviction that this awakening must be based on instilling the values of the civil state and its pillars: freedom of expression and speech and equality between all Egyptians.
