STATEMENT ON NEW US NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR COUNTER-TERRORISM

On 5th October, the US Treasury published a news release containing a statement by the Treasury Secretary saying that, “President Trump’s new National Strategy for Counterterrorism will harden the US financial system against terrorist threats and promote collaboration with allies to counter international terror financing networks.   Treasury employs a broad array of tools to help disrupt terrorist attacks without putting our troops in harm’s way, and this Administration has accelerated efforts to shut down networks that terrorists use to finance their operations.  Treasury will continue to apply sustained pressure on ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Hizballah and other Iran-sponsored proxies, Lashkar-E Tayyiba, and other terrorist organisations”.
