ABU DHABI, Ramadan 29, 1438, June 24, 2017, SPA -- Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan has condemned in the strongest terms the heinous terrorist crime to target the Grand Holy Mosque in Makkah, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
He emphasized that the UAE backs and stands in full solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
"This heinous crime exposes the extent of terrorism and the savagery of those terrorist groups, and no one in their right mind can justify or explain it," Sheikh Abdullah stated.
Hailing the vigilance and efficiency of the Saudi security services that nipped this heinous crime in the bud before its evil could reach the Grand Mosque, he highlighted that every Muslim in the world praises what the Kingdom, led by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, is doing to serve Islam and Muslims and spread love and tolerance among all peoples of the world.
"This heinous crime will make us even more formidable and determined to eliminate terrorism and eradicate its sources along with all those who finance, incite, sympathize with, or justify it in any manner whatsoever," Sheikh Abdullah further said.
