The UAE has welcomed the adoption of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution on countering religious hatred as incitement to discrimination, hostility, or violence, stressing the importance of enhancing respect for religions, tolerance, and peaceful coexistence, which are the most effective principles to achieve prosperity, development, and harmony.

In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) stated that the UAE commends this step, which is consistent with the UN Security Council's adoption of the resolution put forth by the UAE and the United Kingdom on "Tolerance and International Peace and Security" during the UAE’s presidency of the Council in June.
