The Ministers said: "The attack on a house last week and arson attacks on two cars in Ballymena over the weekend are simply not acceptable.
"Thankfully no one was injured in these attacks but the entire community must unite and reject this behaviour which exudes intolerance, ignorance and zero respect for humanity.
"We urge anyone with any information relating to these attacks to bring it to the PSNI.
"Many families have sons, daughters or close family members dotted around the globe and they must consider how they would feel if they were being attacked or singled out because of their race, colour or nationality.
"We must make every effort to create the conditions where we are welcoming and everyone feels part of the community."
