The Saudi king announced the work on creation of pan-Arab anti-terrorism forces.

CAIRO (Sputnik) – Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud on Sunday announced the work on creation of pan-Arab anti-terrorism forces.

"We are working to move forward on the establishment of the United Arab [anti-terrorism] forces," the king said, speaking before the Egyptian Parliament in Cairo, where he is on an official visit.

The idea of creating a pan-Arab anti-terrorism forces was discussed at the Arab League Summit in 2015, but the parties were unable to agree on the principles and objectives of its formation. Following the summit, the Arab countries set up a commission, which was tasked to consider issues of the budget, as well as the legal status of the pan-Arab forces to combat terrorism.
