The UK government spokesman for the Middle East and North Africa, Edwin Samuel, lauded Saudi Arabia’s role in combating terrorism, particularly the international coalition’s framework in this field - confirming Britain’s continued support for those efforts.

In an exclusive interview with Al Arabiya’s Al-Hadath TV, he said the Riyadh international conference on combating ISIS was yet more evidence that Saudi Arabia and the world were prepared to dismantle ISIS’ capabilities.

He also praised Saudi’s role in the intellectual battle against ISIS, as he said a military campaign alone was not sufficient.
