Belgium decides to end convention with Saudis on Great Mosque of Brussels

Belgium’s Federal Government decided on Friday to break off immediately its convention with Saudi Arabia on the Great Mosque of Brussels. This is in keeping with a recommendation of the commission of inquiry into the terrorist attacks that aims to end the involvement of foreign states in the teaching of Islam in Belgium.

The decision provides for a one-year transition period that will be used to establish a new structure associating the Executive of Muslims in Belgium and a local community that is to be set up. The new structure will manage the mosque and be in charge of training imams.
