Foreign Secretary's Eid message

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson wishes “Eid Mubarak” to all Muslims on the occasion of Eid Al Adha.

The Foreign Secretary said:

I wish all Muslims in the UK and across the world a happy Eid as they gather with their families to celebrate, and congratulate all those participating in the Hajj pilgrimage. The UK values hugely the contribution made by British Muslims to all aspects of our society. We are proud of our strong traditions of diversity and tolerance in Britain.

We continue to work with our partners for peace and harmony across the Muslim world and in particular for an end to the conflicts in Syria and Yemen. My thoughts are with those who due to their circumstances, may be unable to celebrate Eid Al Adha this year.

Eid Mubarak to all.
