UN, December 9. /TASS/. Russia and the US are jointly drafting a UN Security Council resolution on fighting terrorism, which will focus on the threat from the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group and oil trade with extremists, Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations Organisation Vitaly Churkin told reporters on Tuesday.
The document may be adopted at a meeting on December 18, which will be chaired by the US Secretary of State John Kerry, he said.
"It will be a vast, overwhelming resolution on fighting terrorism, which will greatly build up the potential of the Security Council in fighting the terrorist threat," the diplomat said. "We are quite sure the resolution will be ready by December 18."
In the document, he said, IS will be highlighted as a separate terrorist movement - till now the Security Council has considered the group a branch of al-Qaeda. Besides, the document will increase control over fulfilment of resolution 2199, adopted in February, which bans trade with terrorists of oil and cultural heritage objects.
