Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan expressed disappointment and strong disapproval towards rich countries that neglect their responsibility to repatriate their citizens who were detained during the battle against Daesh, as reported by Al-Mamlaka TV.

‘Assume your responsibilities’
Addressing the US-led coalition meeting in the Saudi capital, Prince Faisal emphasized the necessity for countries to take action and fulfill their responsibilities, highlighting that being part of a coalition entails working collectively.

"You (countries in the coalition) have to act and assume your responsibilities. Being part of a coalition means working together," he said.

The ministerial meeting sees the participation of the League of Arab States, with a delegation led by Ambassador Khalil Al Thawadi, the assistant secretary-general and head of the Arab Affairs and National Security Sector of the Arab League.

Prince Faisal underscored the significance of convening this meeting as a platform for consultation and the exchange of perspectives on effectively countering the grave challenges posed by the terrorist organization.

Wide participation
During the meeting of the political directors of the international coalition against Daesh in The Hague, Saudi Arabia had announced its commitment to hosting the ministerial gathering of the coalition.

Comprising 85 countries and partner organizations from various nations around the world, the international coalition against Daesh was formed in September 2014 to combat the terrorist group's activities.
