EU to step up anti terrorism projects


Brussels: The European Union has taken up a resolution to launch anti-terrorism projects with the Muslim countries and has also planned to increase its intelligence sharing following the deadly attacks in France and Belgium.

On Monday the EU foreign Ministers met at Brussels with Arab League’s Secretary General Nabil Elaraby. EU foreign affairs Chief Federica Mogherini said the Union will share information on suspected terrorists and possible attacks with many countries throughout Arab, Asia and Africa.

Mogherini also added that the decision was taken within the Foreign Affairs Council to coordinate in a much more active way.

Two suspected terrorists were killed in a shoot out with Belgian Police in the aftermath of the Paris attack. Similar raids were also undertaken in other countries of the EU including Germany and France and member states of the European Union have increased police patrolling in their streets.
