Sharm El Sheikh Summit Declaration Announced 3 Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt

12- We exchanged concerns on threats to international and regional peace and security, including terrorism, radicalization, destabilizing actions, proliferation, illegal arms trafficking and organized crime. These are serious challenges that require concerted efforts, in accordance with international law, including international human rights law. We acknowledged that peace and security, human rights and economic and social development are mutually reinforcing. We agreed in particular to further enhance cooperation and coordination aimed at addressing the root causes of terrorism, and stressed our continued efforts to combat the movement of foreign terrorist fighters across our borders, and affirmed that successfully combating these challenges requires a comprehensive approach including, inter alia, cutting-off all methods of support to those terrorists including financial, political, logistical and military support;

13- We discussed the importance of preserving the global nuclear non-proliferation architecture, based on the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, and the objective of a Middle East region free of weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery.

14- We further reaffirmed our resolve to combat cultural and religious intolerance, extremism, negative stereotyping, stigmatization and discrimination leading to incitement to violence against persons based on religion or belief and condemn any advocacy of religious hatred against individuals that constitutes incitement, hostility or violence, including on the internet and social media.

15- We directed our respective institutions in coordination with our relevant national authorities to identify modalities and mechanisms to operationalize mutual cooperation in all the aforementioned areas, taking into account existing mechanisms for cooperation and partnership including those within the Association Agreements.
