OIC condemns Kandahar terrorist attack, extends condolences to UAE

JEDDAH, The 57-member Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, OIC, has condemned yesterday’s terrorist attack in Kandahar, Afghanistan, that resulted in the wounding of the United Arab Emirates Ambassador in Afghanistan and the death of a number of Emiratis who were carrying out a humanitarian, development and educational mission in Afghanistan.

In a statement, OIC Secretary-General Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen expressed his condemnation of “this cowardly and despicable act, re-emphasising once again that terrorism has neither religion nor nationality.”

He also extended his condolences to the government of the United Arab Emirates and the families of the victims and wished speedy recovery for those injured in the attack.

The secretary general reiterated the OIC’s principled position, which strongly condemns terrorism and extremism in all their forms and manifestations.

The OIC is the second largest inter-governmental organisation after the United Nations, and is the collective voice of the Muslim world.
