The Australian foreign Minister will discuss new approaches in the fight against terrorism, which it has formed by the results of his recent visit s to ASEAN countries.
The Minister for foreign Affairs of Australia Julie Bishop will share new ideas on combating terrorism during a meeting of foreign Ministers of the countries participating in the coalition against “ISIS” in Washington.

“The return of foreign terrorist fighters is a key issue for countries of the coalition after the “ISIS” will lose its last positions in Iraq and Syria. Australia strengthens cooperation with many countries, especially neighbours in South-East Asia to confront this threat,” said Bishop during a speech in the Australian Parliament ahead of his visit.
It is expected that during the meeting in Washington, which will be held under the leadership of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the foreign Minister of Australia will discuss new approaches in the fight against terrorism, which it has formed by the results of his recent visits to ASEAN countries.
According to the Minister, her recent visits to Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines aimed at coordination of efforts to prevent fighters from returning to Australia. According to Julie Bishop, the greatest concern is the strengthening of the position of terrorists in the southern Philippines, especially around Mindanao. That is why Australia initiated a process to enhance the exchange of intelligence information with countries in South-East Asia.
