The Togolese Minister of Security and Civil Protection , Yark Damehame visited on Thursday the headquarters of the Islamic Military Coalition for the Fight against Terrorism (CIMCT), in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia). The goal of this trip is to inquire about the efforts of the Islamic Alliance in the fight against extremist ideology and the coordination of all efforts to deal with terrorist tendencies.
This initiative, created at the end of 2015, has multiplied for several years, apart from military interventions, intellectual and media actions in order to combat the financing of terrorism and therefore the spread of terrorist activities.
For Togo, now directly affected by the terrorist threat, it is necessary to find out about the latest developments on the various means implemented by the Alliance.
The CIMCT was drafted following military cooperation between several countries in the Near and Middle East and North Africa. It currently has around thirty countries, Arab or not, including Togo and African nations such as Mali, Senegal, Gabon and Côte d’Ivoire.
