On 9 February, Ms Michèle Coninsx, President of Eurojust, hosted the visit of H.E. Mr Piet de Klerk, Ambassador at Large and Special Envoy for Counterterrorism at the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Mr De Klerk is also Chair of one of the working groups of the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF).
The visit allowed Mr De Klerk to familiarise himself with the work of Eurojust in fighting terrorism and to explore possible means of cooperation, particularly with regard to the international approach to the phenomenon of foreign terrorist fighters. Eurojust gained some insight into the functioning of the GCTF and the Global Coalition against Daesh. Background:
