Schulz on the violent attacks against diplomatic missions
Commenting on the recent string of violent attacks against US and EU diplomatic missions around the world and on NATO’s Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, the President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz stated:
"I strongly condemn this unjustified violence and those who fuel it.
I strongly condemn the use of religion to incite hatred and violence. I also criticise any attempt to ridicule Islam.
People and leaders must not mistake the deeds of isolated hateful individuals with the policies of states and institutions.
I urge all leaders in the affected areas to do their utmost to protect diplomatic staff in their countries and to avoid all kind of inflammatory rhetoric
