Minister of Maghreb Affairs, African Union and Arab League Abdelkader Messahel on Sunday called Arab countries in Cairo for combining efforts to face proliferation of terrorist groups.

"It's time to join forces to  face proliferation of terrorist groups, who pose a threat not only to security in Arab countries but also to human values and universal principles," Messahel said at the 144th session of the Arab League Council of Ministers.

Terrorist attacks are spreading in our region and taking advantage of political conflicts, the decline of State authority and the breaking up of security institutions, Messahel said.

"Settling such conflicts is a top priority and all of us must be involved and act methodically to establish the rule of law."
