MOSCOW, October 6. /TASS/. Russia and its partners in the UN Security Council are pressing for effective measures to plug the loopholes being used for financing terrorist groups like the Islamic State, al-Qaeda and Jabhat al-Nusra, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday.
“Neither the Islamic State nor al-Qaeda, nor the so called Islamic Front, nor Jabhat al-Nusra would have been able to do what they have been doing without external support. This is clear to all,” Lavrov said. “Together with our partners, including those in the UN Security Council, we are pressing for effective steps to plug the loopholes for the financial and material support for these terrorist organizations," he stressed.
Lavrov recalled the corresponding UN Security Council resolution on the impermissibility of trafficking militants and weapons. “Just recently a resolution was adopted at our initiative to prohibit deriving incomes from trade in oil produced in the territories of Iraq and Syria that are under the terrorists’ control,” he said.
