UFA, July 10. /TASS/. President of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov has called on Friday for the creation of a UN commission on the problem of activity of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organisation. He raised this issue at an expanded meeting of the Council of the Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Ufa, capital of Russia’s Bashkortostan republic.
"Many speak of the Islamic State, but unfortunately, hardly anybody has found the roots of the Islamic State creation. Elaborating on the topic, I think that the UN should create a special commission [on IS]," the Uzbekistani leader said.
"I think this commission might put forward a certain proposal and discuss it to work out a general opinion on what the Islamic State is and how we should perceive and combat it," Karimov said.
