AMMONNEWS - Jordan is a strategic ally in the war on extremism and terrorist organizations, as it suffered from the terrorism and offered sacrifices in the battle against it, Interior Minister Samir Mubaidin said on Monday.

The minister made his remarks during a meeting with the Head of the United Nations (UN) Office of Counter-Terrorism, Vladimir Voronkov, and his accompanying delegation.

The meeting focused on ways to enhance cooperation between Jordan and the UN in countering terrorism and extremism and the support that could be offered by the UN to Jordan in this regard.

Mubaidin said that countering terrorism is not limited to a particular country, but it is the duty of the international community as a whole, pointing out that Jordan's fight against terrorism is based on an approach combining military, security and ideology.

The minister stressed that the ideological dimension in fighting terrorism and extremism is the most important and dangerous one, as it needs a longer period of time, noting that the Kingdom, under royal directives, lunched the Amman Message which clarified the true image of Islam.

The government has put in place a national anti-terrorism strategy, in which all ministries and concerned bodies are involved to counter terrorism at the ideological level, he said.

The UN official stressed the importance of intensifying coordination between the two sides to reduce the spread of crime and combat extremism and terrorism.
