Foreign Minister Maas wishes all people of the Muslim faith a blessed Eid al-Fitr – a blessed Festival of the Breaking of the Fast.

I would like to wish all Muslims a blessed Festival of the Breaking of the Fast, a blessed Eid ul‑Fitr.

Ramadan, the month of fasting, is a special time for people of the Muslim faith throughout the world – a time of contemplation but also of fellowship and community. We therefore send particularly warm wishes to those who are unable to celebrate in the company of their families and friends.

Gestures of solidarity, peaceful encounters and respect are more important than ever in turbulent times. Crises and conflicts can only be overcome if we reach out to one another and engage in dialogue. Days of celebration like today clearly show us the responsibility we have to work for tolerance, reconciliation and peace in a way that transcends religious boundaries, political differences and disparities.
