Saudi Arabia appreciates the significant and tangible role played by the Global Coalition to defeat ISIS, announced Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah.

Prince Faisal chaired the Saudi delegation at the ministerial meeting of the Global Coalition to defeat ISIS, which was held in Marrakesh, Morocco.

"We should never forget that the threat of this organization remains, which would require everyone to continue efforts and continuous coordination to eliminate it completely,” he said.

Prince Faisal also affirmed that the Kingdom continues to maintain its firm stance towards supporting the efforts of the Coalition, stressing 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 Coalition.

Prince Faisal announced the Kingdom's keenness to support reconstruction projects in Iraq, support efforts to stabilize the liberated areas in Syria, and create security and economic stability in the country.

He pointed out that the Kingdom has established several centers, the most important of which is the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology (Etidal), which works at the regional and international levels to combat extremist messages.

Prince Faisal reiterated the Kingdom's support for establishing the focus group on Africa since its inception to confront the growing threat of the spread of ISIS in the African continent.
