Jordan is planning to hold an anti-ISIS meeting mid November, hosting a meeting of political managers of the small group of the Global Coalition to Counter Daesh, an official said on Thursday.

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Mohammad Kayed said that the gathering would include the participation of representatives of 27 countries and four international organisations.

Kayed added that the meeting is being held at a significant moment, as the Middle East region sees headway being made against terrorism on the ground in both Syria and Iraq.

Attendees will discuss the latest developments in the coalition's efforts to tackle ISIS, especially after the recapture of Iraq's Mosul and Syria's Raqqa from the extremist group.

They will also discuss the best means to completey defeat ISIS through the coordination of relevant efforts.

The Global Coalition to Counter Daesh, which was formed in September 2014, comprises 69 countries and four international organisations: Arab League, NATO, Interpol and EU.
