In Washington, D.C., the ministers of the 68 member states of the Coalition will address in detail the priorities in each of the five lines of work: military assistance, foreign terrorists, communication, establishment of recovered areas, and combatting the financing of terrorism.

Spain has been a committed member of the Global Coalition Against Daesh since its creation in 2014 and is included in the Small Group of the member that are most actively involved in its efforts.

Regarding the military, Spain contributes with the deployment in Iraq of 425 soldiers that teach units of the Iraqi army. To date, more than five thousand Iraqi troops have received training from the Spanish mission. In the efforts against the recruitment of foreign terrorist combatants, Spain has stood out by cosponsoring UN Security Council Resolution 2178, actively participating in the Global Counterterrorism Forum and adjusting its legislation through various reforms in the penal code.

Spain is a strong supporter of interreligious dialogue, as demonstrated by our participation in the Alliance of Civilizations and the King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID). Furthermore, Spain collaborates with the Coalition in terms of communication, coordinating its messages with those of the rest of the members to counteract the violent messages of Daesh.
