Arab Interior ministers said the “victories achieved against terrorist groups in the Arab region should not make us forget the need to meet the current challengers relating to the comeback of foreign fighters and the movement of terrorist groups to other regions, hence the necessity to coordinate our efforts with the international community to fight this scourge.”
