UAE condemns criminal act in France


The UAE has strongly condemned the terrorist and criminal act that took place near Paris, which left a French national dead.

In a statement issued on Saturday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) expressed its strong condemnation of the gruesome act in the town of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, stressing that murder is an unjustifiable crime.

The Ministry also stressed its utter denunciation of all forms of violence aimed at destabilising security and stability of a region.

MoFAIC went on to renew its call against hate speech and violence - in all its forms, sources, and motives - and underscored the necessity of respecting religious sanctities and symbols and refraining from inciting hatred.

The Ministry concluded by expressing its sincere condolences to the family of the victim and to the French people.
