On September 19, 2011, the United Nations reported that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon kicked off the Symposium on International Counter-terrorism Cooperation at the UN 66th General Assembly.

Alluding to the limits of fighting terrorism individually, the Secretary General stated "Effective counter-terrorism requires a combination of social, educational, economic and political tools that target those factors that make the terrorist option appear attractive." Furthermore, the Secretary General announced the creation of a UN Centre for Counter Terrorism, which will be based in New York with the contribution of $10 million from Saudi Arabia.
