CAIRO – 28 February 2018: The US Department of State, in cooperation with INTERPOL and the International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law, will host an International Conference on Mobilizing Law Enforcement Efforts to Defeat Daesh in Washington on February 27, the Department of State said in a statement on its official website.

The conference will bring together senior-level justice and law enforcement officials, and their diplomatic counterparts responsible for counter-terrorism, from approximately 90 countries and organizations, the statement added.

"Although Daesh has lost nearly all of its former territory in Iraq and Syria, we cannot underestimate the evolving threat Daesh networks and local adherents pose elsewhere," the statement read.

"While we will continue our efforts to ensure that Daesh is militarily defeated, it is increasingly important that we also mobilize justice and law enforcement agencies around the world to neutralize Daesh's other incarnations," it added.

"The conference participants will seek to establish a common understanding of the depth and breadth of the evolving Daesh global threat, and discuss how we can enhance law enforcement and other civilian tools to counter Daesh," The Department stated. "It will also identify specific actions to help countries disrupt potential attacks, and further strengthen unity of purpose.

"The discussions over the two-day conference will build on our existing strategy and lay the foundation for the next phase in our effort as we work to confront the evolving Daesh threat," it concluded.
