The official further noted that such heinous crimes committed by the terrorist groups are against the teachings of Islam, saying the Takfiri groups are falsely carrying the flag of the religion.
SHAFAQNA– United Arab Emirates (UAE) Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan has lashed out at Takfiri terrorist groups in the Middle East, saying the groups are a false representation of Islam.
“The acts of these terrorist organizations, which include indiscriminate killings, mass executions, kidnappings and intimidation of innocent women and children, are criminal acts, which are strongly condemned by the UAE,” the UAE foreign minister said, addressing the 69th annual session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Saturday.
“The UAE also denounces the brutal methods used by such groups in the name of Islam, as Islam rejects such crimes, which are inconsistent with the moderate approach of Islam and the principles of peaceful coexistence among all people,” he added.
He also called on the international community to act against the terrorist groups in the region, especially the ISIL terrorist group which is also known as the ISIS, warning that the Takfiri groups represent a danger to the whole world.
“With the increased incidence of terrorism and extremism in our region, most notably perpetrated by the ISIS, the international community must be aware that the threats posed by these terrorist and extremist groups are expanding beyond our region to threaten the rest of the civilized world,” he said, adding that “The UAE, therefore, calls upon the international community and Member States to cooperate in combating these terrorist groups and to take comprehensive measures to fight them through a clear, unified strategy.”
The Takfiri ISIL militants have seized large swathes of Iraq and Syria. They have carried out heinous crimes in the two countries including mass execution of people.
