Saudi Prince Vows New Islamic Alliance 'Will Wipe Out Terrorists From Earth'

The theme of the meeting is "Allied Against Terrorism".

Minister for Defence Khurram Dastgir Khan on Sunday assured Saudi Arabia and the member countries of Pakistan's support and cooperation within the mutually agreed framework of Islamic Military Counter-Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC).

Top defense officials from some 40 Muslim-majority countries met for the summit, aiming at countering "terrorism.".Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has vowed during the Islamic Military Coalition's forum to end terrorism which has mutilated the image of Islam and terrorized innocent people across the world.

Today's meeting coincides with an escalation in tensions between Saudi and Iran, particularly over wars in Syria and Yemen and the political structure of multi-confessional Lebanon.

The coalition's new website said its main objective "is to increase co-operation between Islamic countries on the combating the financing of terrorism and to counter radical Islamic ideology".

The inaugural conference of defence ministers of member countries of the Saudi-led alliance is taking place in Riyadh on Sunday.




In June, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain cut diplomatic and trade ties with Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism, a claim vehemently denied by the Gulf state.

Retired Pakistani general Raheel Sharif, who has been appointed commander-in-chief, also insisted that the coalition was not against any religion or state.

Raheel Sharif presents the Military domain, aims to assist in the coordination of resourcing and planning of Member Country military Counter Terrorism operations, facilitate the secure sharing of military information, and encourage military capability to ultimately deter aggression and violence.

Egypt, which sent a military official and not its defence minister to the Sunday meeting, is reeling from a Friday attack on a mosque that killed more than 300 people during prayer time.

He said Pakistan has turned the tide against the menace of terrorism and defeated it.

Since his sudden appointment as crown prince, Prince Mohammed has moved to consolidate power, announcing crackdowns on both terrorism and corruption.
