President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom has attended the ceremony to inaugurate the Global Centre for Combating Extremist Ideology in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Other leaders and foreign dignitaries who attended the Arab Islamic American Summit on counter-terrorism held in Riyadh yesterday were also present at the ceremony.
Based on the three pillars; ideological, digital, and informational, the Global Centre for Combating Extremist Ideology aims to mobilize international cooperation in the fight against terrorism and violent extremism through constructive dialogue. It advocates for the promotion of counter-narratives that repudiate extremist thought, as well as the employment of state-of-the-art artificial intelligence to identify geographical locations harbouring terrorists and their sources of armament and funding.
The Centre is run by a high committee consisting of thinkers and Muslims scholars from different countries and international experts on counter-terrorism. It will stand as testimony for the condemnation of terrorism by Islamic nations and their substantial efforts underway to combat terrorism.
