Jordan to host meeting for Global Coalition against Daesh mid November

AMMAN, 10th November, 2017 (WAM) -- Jordan has announced that it will host a meeting for the political leaders of the Global Coalition against Daesh in mid-November, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

Petra quoted Mohammad Al Kayed, official spokesman of Jordan’s Ministry of Foreign and Expatriates Affairs, as saying that the meeting will be attended by representatives of 27 countries as well as four international organisations.

Al Kayed said that the meeting will be held at an important stage that coincides with the positive developments in the war against terrorism in Iraq and Syria. He added that the meeting is a continuation of a previous meeting held by the foreign ministers of the international coalition in New York last September on the sidelines of the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly.

Participants will discuss the coalition's efforts to fight Daesh, especially after the liberation of the Iraqi city of Mosul and the Syrian city of Raqqa from the terrorism group, Petra said.

The Global Coalition against Daesh was formed in September 2014 and is committed to degrading and ultimately defeating Daesh. The Coalition’s 73 members are committed to tackling Daesh on all fronts, to dismantling its networks and countering its global ambitions.
