British Prime Minister David Cameron on Saturday condemned attacks on the Israeli Embassy in Cairo, saying Egypt was responsible for protecting diplomatic property.

"I strongly condemn the attack on the Israeli Embassy in Cairo. We have urged the Egyptian authorities to meet their responsibilities under the Vienna Convention to protect diplomatic property and personnel, including the Israeli Embassy in Cairo. They have reassured us that they take these very seriously," Cameron said in a statement.

"The Egyptian authorities have previously said that they will uphold Egypt’s international agreements including its peace treaty with Israel.  We welcome this and look to Egypt to honour this commitment. We urge both countries to work together to resolve current tensions and enhance regional stability,”he added.
