Lebanese diplomacy called on Sweden to take measures to end acts that deepen feelings of hatred, Islamophobia and racism, incite violence, and insult religions.
On Friday, Lebanon condemned an attack on Quran in Stockholm, saying "it constitutes a continuous violation of Muslims' feelings and dignity."
A statement released by Lebanon's Foreign Affairs Ministry called on Swedish authorities to take appropriate measures to end all acts that deepen feelings of hatred, Islamophobia and racism, incite violence, and insult religions.
The Lebanese statement comes in response to the incident on Thursday in Sweden's capital Stockholm, in which one of the protesters trampled on the Quran.
"A man desecrated a copy of the Holy Quran in front of the Iraqi embassy in Stockholm. Despite protests of the official permission for previous acts of desecration in January, this provocation also took place under heavy police protection," TRT World reported.
The Lebanese diplomacy also condemned the burning of the Iraqi flag during a demonstration in Stockholm, calling for the perpetrators to be held accountable without hesitation.
On Friday, the Lebanese army was deployed at the entrances of the Swedish Embassy in Beirut, and tightened security procedures around the Swedish ambassador's residence.
Other nations also rejected the events in Sweden. Saudi Arabia, a country that is home to the holiest places for the over 1.3 billion Muslims on the planet, expressed its "strong condemnation and denunciation of the repeated and irresponsible granting by the Swedish authorities of permits authorizing to burn and desecrate copies of the Holy Quran."
The Saudi Foreign Affairs Ministry described the authorization as a "systematic provocation against the sentiments of millions of Muslims around the world."
