Terrorism is a global phenomenon requiring a concerted response from the international community. Besides adopting a holistic and integrated approach at national level, Belgium engages constructively in the European and international cooperation on tackling terrorism and violent extremism leading to terrorism. The FPS Foreign Affairs and the network of Belgian diplomatic and consular missions abroad are closely involved in this process.

In line with its condemnation of all forms of terrorism, Belgium is ensuring that international fight against terrorism fully respects human rights and international humanitarian law.
