Thursday 07th Feb 2019

Minister of State of Foreign Affairs, Adel Al-Jubeir, attended a ministerial meeting in Washington of the member states of the Global Coalition to defeat ISIS, on behalf of Saudi Arabia.

Delegates from the member states present discussed the ongoing operation against ISIS and ways in which their joint cooperation can be enhanced.

Speaking about ISIS, Al-Jubeir said that “The International Coalition to Fight ISIS was established in 2014 and consists of 12 countries. My country was one of the founding countries and one of the first countries that participated actively in the military operations against the organization”.

He went on to add that “My government will continue its fight against terrorism and its sponsoring countries, and pledge to support all international and regional efforts to eliminate terrorist organizations, terrorism and the activities of destabilizing states in the region. We believe that our war against terrorism must include combating its funding and rhetoric that justifies violence and terrorism. For this reason, my country has established a center to combat terrorism and extremism and its sources of funding. We also underscore the importance of continuing this alliance so that we can all ensure an effective and lasting defeat”.

US President Donald Trump added yesterday that he believes ISIS are on the verge of being entirely pushed out of Iraq and Syria, and predicts that this milestone in the fight against terror is a mere week away.
