"I had an opportunity to learn how important it is to identify radicalization and that efforts to counter this threat should be shared not only by the police and judicial system.

The minister announced that 100,000 euros ($119,690) had been allocated to implement this initiative.
The country has intensified its efforts to prevent terrorist activity since March 22, 2016, when two explosions hit the Brussels airport, with a third detonating inside a train carriage at the Maalbeek metro station half an hour later. A total of 32 people were killed, and over 300 more were injured. The Daesh* terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks.
