BAGHDAD, March 13 (Xinhua) -- Iraq's first international counter-terrorism conference ended on Thursday in Baghdad after approving procedures of cooperation to eliminate terrorism across the world.
The meeting recommended to work on "promoting the international judiciary system in respect with media in order to ban media that incite violence, hatred and terrorism," the meeting's committee said.
The two-day meeting also recommended to "enhance international cooperation in the field of information, experience exchange, and extradition." Fighting money laundering and terror financing were on its agenda too.
The conference urged the states to enact national procedures and legislations to prevent terrorists from using asylum and immigration laws to get safe haven, or using their territories as bases for recruiting, training, planning, inciting and launching terrorist attacks against other states.
On Wednesday, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki inaugurated Baghdad's First International Counter-Terrorism Conference. The event was attended by representatives from some 25 Arab and other countries, as well as some world organizations such as the United Nations, the European Union, the Arab League, and the Interpol.
Iraq has been plagued by violence for years. Last year marked the bloodiest since the sectarian conflict began to decrease in 2008.
A total of 8,868 Iraqis, including 7,818 civilians and police personnel, were killed in 2013. The Iraqi government has frequently warned and complained of the spillover of violence from the crisis in neighboring Syria.
