Saudi Arabia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Abdulaziz bin Mohammed Al-Wasel delivered a cheque in the amount of $300,000 to the Undersecretary of the United Nations for Counter-Terrorism Department Vladimir Vornkov at the UN Headquarters, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
Al-Wasel expressed the appreciation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the important role the UN Counter-Terrorism Office is playing to face extremism and terror through the UN Counter-Terrorism Center, confirming the Kingdom’s determination to proceed with all efforts aiming to enhance steps leading to wipe out the phenomenon regionally and internationally.
Across the globe, the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT) leads and coordinates an all-of-UN approach to prevent and counter terrorism and violent extremism.
