Terror attacks will not undermine our determination to fight scourge


The string of cowardly terrorist attacks that struck Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Bangladesh and Iraq at the end of the holy month of Ramadan have touched once more the hearts and minds of people across the globe, to which we join our sympathy for all the victims and their families. reinforce the determination of the Kingdom and of its allied in the fight against any form of terrorism.

As underlined by the Deputy Minister of Islamic Affairs, Call and Guidance Tawfiq bin Abdul Aziz Al-Sudairi, the criminal act in Madinah did not take into account the sanctity of the place, the time and innocent lives. In this context, Governor of the Asir region Prince Faisal bin Khalid said the terrorist acts witnessed in Madinah, Jeddah and Qatif have demonstrated the volume of enmity shown by the terrorists against the Kingdom through the violation of the sanctity of the Holy Month of Ramadan and shedding the blood of worshippers in the holiest place.

On behalf of the EU, High Representative Federica Mogherini expressed her sympathies and reiterated the EU’s wish to cooperate to fight terrorism in all its forms.

Now, more than ever, it is incumbent on us to work together to eradicate this scourge, as Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir and US Secretary of State discussed yesterday. Through international cooperation it can and will be overcome.
