UAE stands by Pakistan
Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, said the country stood by Pakistan and its people.
The incident, Sheikh Mohammed said, only serves to “strengthen our resolute and firm position against extremism and terrorism because we are well aware that those criminal hands know no limits, mercy, law or religion”.
“We are more convinced now that confronting terrorism is a collective responsibility that requires decisiveness.
“As we stand ... by the government and people of Pakistan, we learn from this deplorable crime that our war against terrorism is our way to guarantee saving lives, maintaining communities and enhancing peace and to eradicate a plague that is aimed at tarnishing our religion of Islam, which is founded on tolerance and love a reflection of our humanity and identity.”
