Saudi FM affirms Kingdom's support for international coalition against Daesh
Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan affirmed that the Kingdom continues to maintain its firm stance toward supporting the efforts of the international coalition against Daesh.
Prince Faisal headed the Saudi delegation at the ministerial meeting of the international coalition against the terrorist organization Daesh, which was held in Morocco on Wednesday.
During his speech, the foreign minister stressed the Kingdom's appreciation for the significant and tangible role played by anti-Daesh international coalition, which resulted in eliminating its expansion and spread in Iraq and Syria.
“We should never forget that the threat of this organization still exists and that it would require everyone to continue efforts and coordination to eliminate it completely,” he said.
Prince Faisal also stressed the Kingdom's keenness on the stability of Iraq and the extension of its influence and sovereignty over its entire territory. He praised the efforts made by Iraq and its continuous coordination with the international coalition for the eradication of this organization.
He also indicated the Kingdom's keenness to support reconstruction projects in Iraq, support efforts to stabilize the liberated areas in Syria, and stabilize the security and the economic situation there. He pointed out that the Kingdom has established a number of centers, the most important of which is the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology (Etidal), which works at regional and international levels to combat extremist messages.
At the conclusion of his speech, Prince Faisal said the Kingdom welcomed and supported the establishment of the focus group on Africa since its inception to confront the growing threat of the spread of Daesh on the African continent.
