Whereas the Defense Ministers of the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) met in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on Sunday (8/3/1439H) corresponding to (26 November, 2017), based on the declaration issued on 3 Rabi Al-Awwal 1437H (14 December 2015), that includes the announcement of the formation of the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition, and based on the final declaration of the meeting of the Chiefs of Staff of the member countries of this Coalition, in the city of Riyadh during the period (17-18 Jumada II, 1437 H) corresponding to (26-27 March 2016):
The Ministers wish to express their deep appreciation for the efforts of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in forming this Coalition, and thank it for hosting the Inaugural Meeting of the IMCTC Ministers of Defense Council. They also express their thanks to the Minister of Defense of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for presiding over this meeting, managing its proceedings, and the positive results achieved during the meeting.
In this regard, the Ministers of Defense affirm that terrorism represents a constant and growing challenge and threat to peace, security and regional and international stability, as it has transcended the borders of countries, while casting aside all values. Terrorism has become deadlier than ever before, particularly in our Islamic world, which suffers from the crimes of terrorism, leaving heavy losses in property and lives, and has shattered the dreams of broad sectors of societies trying to live in peace and tranquility.
The Ministers of Defense emphasize the resolve of their countries to coordinate and unite their efforts, to ward off the dangers of terrorism and take a stand against it. They emphasize the importance of joint efforts, organized collective actions, and comprehensive strategic planning to deal with the threat of terrorism, and put an end to those who seek to fuel conflicts and sectarianism, and spread chaos, strife and unrest within their countries.
