Ambassador Nathan A. Sales, the Coordinator for Counterterrorism, will be in Paris April 26-27, to lead the U.S. Department of State delegation at the Ministerial Conference to Combat the Financing of Terrorism. The Ministerial’s goals are to strengthen international understanding of terrorist financing networks, increase implementation of terrorist financing laws and regulations, build international cooperation, and serve as a platform to discuss opportunities and challenges arising from new technology. Ambassador Sales’ participation in the conference will also facilitate a discussion on methods to increase the effective implementation of terrorist financing tools against all terrorist organizations, individuals, and supporters.
Following the conference, Ambassador Sales will travel to Jordan to participate in meetings to maintain international and regional cooperation in the fight against terrorism.
