Some of the issues being discussed by the Council of Europe and the Security Council Counter-terrorism Committee include prevention policies, comprehensive and integrated strategies and the role of law enforcement and the criminal justice system.

Ekmeleedin Ihsanoglu, the Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference says it’s been proven that just killing terrorists does not end terrorism.

“We have to deal with the root causes. We have to find a global solution and to have to devise also solutions within the societies, or environments where the focus of terrorist activities are active. We have to be creative. We think that more than one trillion dollars has been spent on what has been called as the World on Terrorism, but we see that the result is not as what we expected.”
