UAE FM slams Muslim Brotherhood


UAE Foreign Minister Shaikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan on Monday denounced the Muslim Brotherhood as “an organisation which encroaches upon sovereignty and integrity of nations”.

“The Muslim Brotherhood’s thinking does not recognize borders or sovereignty of nations. So, it is not unusual that the international Brotherhood organisation works to make inroads upon sovereignty and laws of countries,” Shaikh Abdullah told a joint news conference with his Ukrainian counterpart, Kostyantyn Gryshchenko, in Abu Dhabi on Monday.

Shaikh Abdullah was commenting on the UAE’s talks with other countries to prevent the Muslim Brotherhood’s acts in the country.

Islamists detained in the UAE are said to have confessed to forming a secret organisation aimed at destabilizing the country’s political system, local reports said last week.
