Saudi Anti-Terror Coalition 'May Worsen Sunni-Shia Conflict'
MOSCOW (Sputnik), Alexander Mosesov — Earlier in the day, Saudi Arabia announced the creation of an Islamic military alliance of 34 states to fight terrorism. The joint operation command center will be based in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

"We welcome all efforts to fight against Daesh. The announcement of a broad coalition of 34 Muslim countries to fight terrorism on the military and ideological field is a positive signal in this region hard hit by this scourge," the source said.

The source added that Paris continued coordination of its activities in the struggle against Daesh, banned in many countries, including Russia and the United States, and called for the unity in anti-terror struggle.

The Saudi-led coalition, which includes Egypt, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan and Turkey, among other nations, was created "to counteract terrorism, which became a threat to the interests of the Islamic nation," according to a statement to announce the decision by Riyadh.
