Paris — Saudi Arabian and French officials and experts discussed here the means to dry out terror funding.

The discussions were held at a seminar which was divided into three sessions.

The seminar focused on addressing political Islam, terrorism and means of funding and the challenges posed by what is known as “militant extremism.”

Michel Duclos, Managing Director of the International Diplomatic Academy, said France and Saudi Arabia face the same challenges posed by terrorism.

He said the two countries were working together to devise ways to confront terrorism and its motives and are seeking to clarify misconceptions.
Duclos said that Saudi Arabia talked about its experience of counseling those who have been deceived by extremists.

The participants also discussed the causes of extremism.

During the concluding session, the participants agreed to use modern digital tools, redouble security cooperation and coordination between the two countries and continue to exchange expertise to combat terrorism.
