Belgium

Belgium is a committed member of the Coalition. Belgium has developed a comprehensive approach to counter-terrorism and violent extremism to fulfill its responsibilities at home and abroad.

The strength of this Coalition is based on its diversity and on the collective actions of its members. Each of us brings added value to the common effort. The role played by regional countries must not be under-estimated.

Didier Reynders, Deputy Prime Minister of Belgium and Minister of Foreign Affairs, novembre 2015
