Riyadh, Rabi'I 09, 1439, November 27, 2017, SPA -- Saudi newspapers highlighted in their editorials today a number of issues at local, regional and international arenas.
Al-Riyadh, Al-Yaum and Okaz newspapers focused in their editorials on the Inaugural Meeting of Defense Ministers of Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) in Riyadh yesterday, quoting the Crown Prince in his speech as saying, "Today, more than 40 Islamic countries are sending a very strong signal that they will work together and coordinate very strongly to support each other's efforts, whether in military efforts or financial, intelligence and political aspects'', which gives us a strong indication that an individual work is no longer an option.
The papers also cited the Crown Prince as saying, "Extremist terrorism is distorting our tolerant religion and we will not allow what they have done of distorting the tolerant religion and intimidating innocents in Islamic states and all countries of the world", indicating that the Kingdom is the leader of Arab and Islamic worlds and the first advocate of our religion and it will not accept linking the religion with terrorism.
