The UAE Deputy Permanent Representative to the Arab League, Khalifa Al Tunaiji, has reiterated the country's condemnation of the terrorist attack in Cairo today that led to the killing of Egypt's State Prosecutor, Hisham Barakt. Al Tunaiji said such cowardly terrorist operations would not thwart Egypt's march to end terror and attain stability.
Addressing an emergency meeting of the Arab League's Council, which opened today and was chaired by Jordan, Al Tunaiji reaffirmed the UAE's full solidarity with Egypt, saying the recent terrorist crimes in several countries, which claimed innocent lives during the holy month of Ramadan, contravene all beliefs.
"The UAE vehemently condemns the abhorrent terrorist crime of targeting Al Imam Al Sadiq Mosque in Kuwait. The leadership and people of the UAE stand by the brotherly Kuwait in the fight against terrorism and extremism," he said.
"This crime which targeted a mosque and innocent worshippers is an act of grave escalation by an extremist group that exploits religion to justify its barbaric acts. It is designed to undermine the security and stability of Kuwait and its integrated social fabric."
Al Tunaiji went on to say that such crimes require the international community to rally efforts to confront the cowardly acts and twisted thoughts which pay no heed to human lives and sanctity of mosques. He offered condolences to the victims' families and wished the injured speedy recovery.
Al Tunaiji also expressed the UAE's condemnation of the terrorist attack which targeted two hotels in Sousse in Tunisia and renewed solidarity with the latter in its battle against terror. –End-
