International conference to combat terror financing in ParisTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) – The initiative was launched by French President Emmanuel Macron to coordinate efforts to reduce the terror threat in the long term. A string of attacks have killed 245 people in France since January 2015 and dozens of others have been thwarted.

The French organizers noted that Daesh military defeats on the ground don't prevent the group from pursuing its terrorist activities, along with Al-Qaida —especially in unstable regions of Afghanistan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Yemen, Egypt and sub-Saharan Africa.

Thursday's meeting gathers ministers of justice, finance, foreign affairs and the interior from Western countries, the Arab world and other nations as well as representatives of 18 international organizations.
