UAE’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Abdullah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan said Saturday that the recent terrorist attack attempt targeting Mecca’s Grand Mosque will only increase “our will” to encounter those who support terrorism.
“This horrible crime shows how far terrorism has reached in scope and brutality. No sane person can give any justification or explanation for this,” he said.
The UAE minister hailed the Saudi security apparatus in foiling the attack.
Along Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, the UAE has also severed ties with Qatar after accusing the latter of supporting terrorism.
Bahrain and Kuwait have also denounced the attempted attack as well as Egypt’s Al-Azhar, Sunni Islam’s most revered institution.
