German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said yesterday the decisions of the Extraordinary Islamic Solidarity Summit hosted by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah, which concluded its two-day deliberations on Wednesday in Makkah, were important and wise.
“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has proved once again that it is a major and strong supporter for all peoples of the world who need assistance, a matter which makes the Kingdom enjoy the respect of the world,” Westerwelle said in a statement quoted by the Saudi Press Agency on Friday.
The Islamic Solidarity Summit ended with a focus on inter-sectarian harmony and Islamic unity, and a definitive stand against the brutal Bashar Assad regime in Syria.
The decision resulted from the resolve of the Muslim heads of state to take a united stand alongside the oppressed Syrian people “who suffer tyranny and face aggression under the barrage of artillery and missiles aimed at defenseless civilians.”
Former Lebanese Premier Saad Hariri said the conference has served to close the ranks of the Muslim leaders especially in the Arab world which is passing through a critical period.
Hairi also hoped Lebanon would be able to overcome its current difficulties and shortly achieve political stability and general security.
