Geneva Centre for Human Rights Advancement condemns Kandahar terror attack

DUBAI, The Geneva Centre for Human Rights Advancement and Global Dialogue condemned the terrorist attack in Kandahar, which killed five UAE diplomats who were on a mission to carry out humanitarian, educational and developmental projects in the Republic of Afghanistan.

”The painful incident places before the world a responsibility that all should work to maintain constructive co-operation to eradicate terrorism and its evolving violent consequences that indiscriminately harvested lives regardless of the time and place. The whole world is now a target for unjustifiable acts of violence and destruction and killing of innocent people,” Dr. Hanif Al Qassim, Chairman of Geneva Centre’s Board of Management, said in a statement on Thursday.

The attack, he noted, took place while the Emirati nationals were doing humanitarian work within the framework of the Year of Giving, declared by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Al Qassim appreciated the UAE leadership’s determination to go on providing humanitarian assistance to the people in need across the world.

”These acts of terrorism will only cement the UAE’s will of goodness,” he affirmed.

”The world is in desperate need of a holistic strategy to counter acts of violence and terrorism and their fallout. Governments and people should come together to formulate a non-conventional approach to stem the scourge of terrorism,” he said.
