H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, has condemned in the strongest terms the heinous terrorist crime that has targeted the al-Masjid al-Haram (Grand Mosque) in the holy city of Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
He emphasised 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," H.H. 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 al-Masjid al-Haram, 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, sympathise with, or justify it in any manner whatsoever," Sheikh Abdullah further said.
