The Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition met in Riyadh with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi defence minister.
Defence ministers from 40 Muslim-majority countries have gathered in Saudi Arabia to launch a military coalition aimed at fighting terrorism both in its "ideology and in its violence".
An official statement issued on the eve of the event said that the "pan-Islamic coalition" of 41 Muslim countries would coordinate and multiply their individual efforts in the global fight against terrorism and violent extremism.
"This ends today, with this alliance".
The alliance was formed in 2015 under the leadership of Prince Mohammed, whose heir to the throne in June had shaken the political scene across the region.
The coalition's new website said its main goal "is to increase co-operation between Islamic countries on the combating the financing of terrorism and to counter radical Islamic ideology".
Today's meeting coincides with an escalation in tensions between Saudi and Iran, particularly over wars in Syria and Yemen and the political structure of multi-confessional Lebanon.

The countries in the Islamic Alliance include Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Afghanistan, Uganda, Somalia, Mauritania, Lebanon, Yemen, Turkey and Libya.
