David Cameron and Barack Obama make joint efforts to tackle Islamist extremists
British Prime Minister David Cameron and US President Barack Obama have made joint efforts to tackle the unruly activities of Islamist extremists at their countries and also abroad.
Obama said, “Put simply David is a great friend. He is one of my closest and most trusted partners in the world.” He also said that the economies of both countries are growing strongly and so the countries must be doing something right. One of the incidents that fueled the visit of Mr. Cameron was the attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. The counter terrorist operations in Belgium and United States were also a reason behind his visit to the White House.
Cameron said, “The world is sickened by this terrorism. So we will not be standing alone in this fight. We know what we are up against and we know how we will win.” He added that the countries are facing a poisonous and fanatical ideology that is trying to pervert one of the major religions of the world, Islam, and create terror and death. He also assured that the governments will confront the attacks wherever they happen.
President Obama said that the ideology of violent extremism has metasticised and it is now widespread as it has entered communities around the world and he also added that he doesn’t consider this as an existential threat and that the joint forces of the government are representing the values of the majority of Muslims.
The governments will spend time for the next six months to draw up plans to confront extremism which will be executed by the joint forces as planned.
