'Five Eyes' countries to meet on anti-terrorism fight

January 14, 2015 02:48

OTTAWA - The five nations that make up the world's leading intelligence-sharing network will meet in London next week to confer on strategies to fight terrorism in the wake of the Paris attacks, Canadian officials said on Tuesday.

Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney said the so-called Five Eyes - the United States, Australia, Canada, Britain and New Zealand - had scheduled a meeting for Jan 22.

His comments were unusual, since members of the network rarely talk about its activity.

"We're going to have a meeting with our Five Eyes allies in London ... and this is serious stuff. Terrorism will be there" on the agenda, Blaney told CTV television.
