War on Terror To Dominate Agenda at Saudi Summit

The Arab Islamic American Summit opened in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh on Saturday with 55 leaders and representatives from 60 Islamic countries in attendance - including visiting U.S President Donald Trump.

The summit which has brought together leaders and representatives from the Islamic world will look at ways to build more solid and effective security partnerships to counter and prevent the rising threats of terrorism and violent extremism in the world through promoting tolerance and moderation.

President Ashraf Ghani is also in Saudi Arabia for the summit.

“They (participating nations at the summit) must deal with the issue responsibly, because the reluctance or support of some countries to fight terrorism has led to the expansion of the trend,” said presidential spokesman Shahhussain Murtazawi.

Meanwhile, lawmakers in parliament have mixed feelings about possible outcomes of the summit.

“All countries involved in the issue such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, U.S and the UK are taking advantage of the problem and they can not reach to their goals without fighting the war,” said MP Ramazan Bashardost.  

“Such meetings would prove helpful in restoring peace in Islamic countries if there is a will for it,” said MP Sayed Ali Kazimi.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan is expected to host an international meeting on peace in June where delegates will look at ways to help the war-torn country reach long term peace and security.

“The objective should be the creation of a regional consensus towards peace under the leadership of Afghans,” said deputy spokesman to the CEO Jawed Faisal.

Similar summits have been held in the past to boost international cooperation in the war against terrorism, however none of these summits helped root out terrorism.

Political and military commentators argue that fighting terrorism requires all countries around the world to take action against the menace from a single and united platform." rel="nofollow -
