Muslim World League chief Al-Issa discuss cooperation on anti-terror campaign with EU coordinator

RIYADH (Rahnuma) The secretary-general of the Muslim World League (MWL), Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, held talks with the EU’s counter-terrorism coordinator, Gilles de Kerchove, in Riyadh on Wednesday.

The two discussed cooperation mechanisms to identify and tackle the phenomenon of extremism both in the EU and the Arab world, and de Kerchove praised the efforts of the MWL to spread its message of tolerance, coexistence and peace in troubled regions affected by religious violence.

Al-Issa has personal experience in the field, having carried out many missions to combat extremist ideology personally since becoming MWL secretary-general in 2016.

The Muslim World League itself, meanwhile, is responsible for having developed multiple programs aimed at tackling religious extremism across the globe.
