MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. Establishing armed forces in the framework of Riyadh-led Islamic anti-terrorist coalition is not being considered, Qatar’s Foreign Minister Khaled bin Mohammad Al Attiyah said on Friday.
"We are currently talking about exchanging information on movement of people and money. The topic of establishing armed forces [in the framework of the Riyadh-led coalition - TASS] has not been discussed as of now," he said.
"We are trying to concentrate our efforts on fighting against extremist ideology," the foreign minister added noting that "our Islamic coalition is not working in the sphere of military actions of the [US-led] coalition."
On December 15 Saudi Arabia announced establishing an Islamic coalition "to fight against terrorism in the military and ideological framework" which brought together 33 countries while 10 other Islamic countries expressed their support to the coalition.
