Via The War Files -The US and various Middle Eastern nations have made a new pact which promises to “provide extra troops for defeating the Islamic State,” but also singled out Iran “for destabilizing the region.” US President Trump added that “Riyadh is to become the heart of the region’s counter-terrorism operations.” The pact, the Riyadh declaration, was signed following President Trump’s visit to the Saudi capital for a summit that saw Islamic representatives from 55 countries, and vowed “to combat terrorism in all its forms, address its intellectual roots, dry up its sources of funding and to take all necessary measures to prevent and combat terrorist crimes in close cooperation among their states.” “The leaders welcomed the establishment of a global center for countering extremists thought to take base in Riyadh, and praised the center’s strategic objectives of combating intellectual, media and digital extremism and promoting coexistence and tolerance among peoples,” the document text stated, which was published by the Saudi Press Agency. 171 more words
