The Kingdom of the Netherlands is an active partner in the Global Coalition against Daesh. It participates in all Coalition Working Groups and co-leads the Working Group on Foreign Terrorist Fighters together with Kuweit and Turkey. It contributes to a better future for Iraq providing military support, humanitarian aid, funding de-mining operations and supporting stabilisation and reconstruction of liberated areas.

We see Daesh claiming attacks in a split second to increase fear amongst our people. This fear, with often an increasing divide between different groups in society as a result, puts countries under immense pressure. This again shows us why today we still need to keep striving for a balanced approach and stay focused on prevention as well.

Mr. Stef Blok, Minister of Foreign Affairs
