Five years after 911, the international communitys conflict with transnational terrorists continues Cooperative international efforts have produced genuine security improvements - particularly in securing borders and transportation, enhancing document security, disrupting terrorist financing, and restricting the movement of terrorists The international community has also achieved significant success in dismantling terrorist organizations and disrupting their leadership This has contributed to reduced terrorist operational capabilities and the detention or death of numerous key terrorist leaders working with allies and partners across the world, through coordination and information sharing, we have created a less permissive operating environment for terrorists, keeping leaders on the move or in hiding, and degrading their ability to plan and mount attacks Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and many other partners played major roles in this success, recognizing that international terrorism represents a threat to the whole international community Through the Regional Strategic Initiative, the State Department is working with ambassadors and interagency representatives in key terrorist theaters of operation to assess the threat and devise collaborative strategies, action plans, and policy recommendations we have made progress in organizing regional responses to terrorists who operate in ungoverned spaces or across national borders This initiative has produced better intra-governmental coordination among United States government agencies, greater cooperation with and between regional partners, and improved strategic planning and prioritization, allowing us to use all tools of statecraft to establish long-term measures to marginalize terrorists See Chapter 5-- Terrorist Safe Havens 7120 Report for further information on the Regional Strategic Initiative.
