David Cameron, the Prime Minister, has announced that £5 million will be spent across Commonwealth countries to assist with anti-extremism measures. The announcement was made earlier today at the beginning of the Commonwealth Summit which is being held in Malta.
“The fight against extremism is something that affects us all. The Commonwealth has a vital role to play in broadening international efforts to counter extremism. Its civil society and education networks make it particularly well placed to complement international efforts to build counter narratives to this poisonous extremist ideology.
This is the struggle of our generation, but by working together we will defeat this extremist scourge that is a threat to us all”.
