Thirty-four Muslim countries decided Monday night to establish an anti-terrorism alliance with headquarters in Saudi Arabia, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

SPA said the coalition comes within the context of an anti-terrorism agreement signed by member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

In a Tuesday statement, OIC Secretary-General Iyad Madani said the organisation supports all regional and international efforts aimed at fighting terrorism.

Madani said that the OIC member states are among “the hardest-hit by terrorism.”

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu praised the new coalition Tuesday, stating that it is the strongest answer to those trying to link terrorism to Islam.

Jordanian government spokesman Mohammad Momani said his country welcomes the coalition and is ready to contribute to its success, according to Petra news agency.

Meanwhile, the Arab Parliament said in a statement that it is ready to support the coalition.

The anti-terrorism coalition includes Saudi Arabia, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin, Turkey, Chad, Togo, Tunisia, Djibouti, Senegal, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Gabon, Guinea, Palestine, Comoros, Qatar, Cote d'Ivoire, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Maldives, Mali, Malaysia, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria and Yemen.
