Regarding the fight against terrorism, Prince Faisal bin Farhan stressed the central role played by the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS in the field of counter-terrorism, as well as the importance of cooperation and coordination between different countries to end this threat.

"The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia reiterates its position supporting the full sovereignty of Morocco over all its territories, including the Moroccan Sahara", declared the Saudi FM, reiterating his country’s support to the autonomy plan presented by Morocco to resolve this artificial regional conflict.
