Statement Attributable to the Spokesperson for the High Representative for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations
New York – 14 October,2013
On the occasion of Eid Al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice), I would like to convey my sincere wishes to all Muslims and Nations around the world for peace, good health and prosperity.
As this celebration marks the Hajj or pilgrimage, a journey of dedication and purification, it is also understood as an opportunity for second chances.
While observing this happy occasion, we should remember that we can always work together for a collective response to various global challenges. The faith we have in our constructive dialogue is key to serving humanity and realizing the benefits we share from diversity.
So let us reach out to those less unfortunate and remember them in our prayers. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all again a blessed and harmonious Eid Al-Adha.
