DUBAI: His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, praised the New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for her support to the Muslim community after last week’s Christchurch mosque attacks that killed 50 worshippers.

Thank you PM @jacindaardern and New Zealand for your sincere empathy and support that has won the respect of 1.5 billion Muslims after the terrorist attack that shook the Muslim community around the world”.
