The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the Swedish ambassador to the UAE, Liselot Anderson, to express the UAE’s strong protest and condemnation of the Swedish government for allowing extremists to burn the Koran in the capital Stockholm.

The UAE stressed that Sweden in this regard is disregarding its international responsibilities, showing a lack of respect for the values ​​of society, and stressed the importance of monitoring hate speech and racist expressions that negatively affect peace and security. Furthermore, the ministry stated that it rejects freedom of expression as a justification for such heinous acts.

Ayesha Bin Suwaidan Al Suwaidi, Director-General of the European Affairs Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, delivered a note of protest to the ambassador, affirming that the UAE opposes all practices aimed at undermining security and stability and violating human values ​​and principles. The note highlights that hate speech and extremism can lead to the outbreak, escalation and recurrence of conflicts around the world.

Furthermore, the note highlights the need to respect religious symbols and avoid incitement and polarization at a time when the international community needs to work together to reaffirm its commitment to the universal principles of tolerance and peaceful coexistence. The note also emphasizes that these principles should be promoted and implemented in order to achieve stable and sustainable development.
