His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) welcomed Dr. Yan Vigil, the EU envoy of enhancing religion freedom and convergence outside of the EU along with the accompanied delegation.
His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) stated that human dignity is the highest and basic value in the true religion of Islam, emphasizing that the entire world should be aware that terrorism in all its forms has nothing to do with Islam at all, saying “we have always stated that we carry an olive branch for those who want peace, but we carry weapon in the other hand for enemies of humanity”.
His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) confirmed that the religious authorities in Holy Najaf have always taken stance against any negative attitude or operation, mentioning the strategy of calming the situation in Samarra as the obvious example on ground.
“The true fruit of Islam is peace. We also object the global attitudes in terms of silence towards the states who host or from which terrorism comes, and who have always been working hard to disunite Iraqi people. Such silence will bring negative return towards the entire world. We are continuing toward Iraqi unity and freedom” His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) added.
In conclusion, Dr. Yan presented the outstanding developments during his visit to Holy Najaf, and the EU position which is against many policies of the some states toward Iraqi people, deeply thanking His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) for the time of meeting.
