A return and a debut. The anti-Daesh Coalition is back after two years of pause also due to the pandemic and for the first time the summit will be held in Rome. It will be chaired by Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio and US Secretary of State Tony. Blinken. The decision to hold the summit in Italy is the result of an understanding between Di Maio and Blinken, an act that captures the current confidence of Americans in Italy. The anti-Daesh Coalition met for the last time in plenary in February 2019: the appointment in Rome set for Monday 28 June, also on the occasion of Blinken’s European trip.
At the top they will take part further 40 ministers of the countries joining the Coalition. The summit aims to confirm the commitment of all members of the Coalition in the fight against Daesh and to prevent any attempt at recovery. The table will also discuss how to counter the global dimension of ISIS, in particular the attempt to expand into Africa. It is also an appointment that strengthens the axis between Rome and Washington: the fifth time in a few months that Blinken and Di Maio have seen each other in person.
