White House releases 2018 National Strategy for Counterterrorism

On 4 October 2018, the White House released its National Strategy for Counterterrorism. This is the first time such a strategy has been released since 2011, although the New York Times reports that the 2018 strategy has similar themes to those released by previous administrations.

According to remarks by the US Secretary of State accompanying the release of this document, the new strategy “emphasises the importance of diplomacy and the role of international partnerships in combating terrorist threats” and “recognises the need for all nations to share the burden of confronting terrorism”.
