The United Arab Emirates has strongly condemned the despicable terrorist attacks which hit the cities of Jeddah, Qatif and the Prophet's Mosque in the city of Madinah, Saudi Arabia.
Shaikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, said:

"We stand in solidarity with our brothers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in their fight against the crimes of terrorism whose goals are to spread fear, takfir (branding others as infidels) and incite strife".
He reiterated that the United Arab Emirates stands in full solidarity with the leaders and people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and fully backs any measures they take to eliminate the danger of terrorism which aims to undermine the security and stability of the Kingdom, and which does not respect the sanctity of this month, the Prophet's Mosque and other places of worship that it targets.

Shaikh Abdullah stressed that the stability of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the main pillar of the stability of the United Arab Emirates and the whole of the Gulf Arab region.
"Based on this fact, we believe that these crimes target the United Arab Emirates, its cities and people. We are fully confident that the Saudi leadership will be able to eliminate the threat posed by terrorism and all its forms and manifestations, and that this deviant group of people will not succeed in achieving its goals, thanks to national solidarity and cohesion which recognises the futility of their goals, blood-thirsty crimes as well as the deviance of their claims."
Shaikh Abdullah stressed that Islam has nothing to do with this deviant and extremist ideology that has nothing to do with this religion nor with our traditions and history.
Concluding, Shaikh further stressed that the issue of terrorism that we all face requires our cooperation, coordination and diligence. 
He also stressed that these crimes that target the fraternal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other countries will make us even more determined and resolved to firmly fight them, with full force, and also fight those who seek to undermine our straight religion, its civilized and human values and our security and stability.
Shaikh Abdullah extended condolences to the leaders and people of Saudi Arabia and the families of the victims, and wished those injured speedy recovery.
