Condemns the terrorist blast

The United Arab Emirates has strongly condemned a terrorist blast in a crowded train on the London Underground.

In its statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation announced its total rejection of all forms and practices of instigated violence and extremism while stressing the need for concerted efforts to effectively address extremism and terrorism, which threaten the security of all citizens in their daily lives.

The ministry added that the targeting of civilised societies by terrorists cannot be accepted or underestimated, and will require further serious work and a comprehensive approach, to counter extremist ideologies that promote and justify terrorism.

The UAE expressed its solidarity with the British government and people and the families of those wounded while wishing them a speedy recovery.

The UAE Embassy in UK took to Twitter to post an advisory for Emiratis in London urging them to avoid Parsons Green area, and to follow police instructions.
