STORYLINE
United Nations (UN) Under-Secretary-General for Counter-Terrorism said extremist groups such as ISIL recruit young fighters by exploiting “feelings of disillusionment and alienation, offering a twisted sense of purpose to disaffected young people.”

Speaking at the Security Council today (08 Feb), Vladimire Voronkov told member States that the international community continue to strengthen existing tools to address the evolving threat posed by ISIL.

He said “innovative partnerships between government agencies and private sector actors have strengthened the sharing of sensitive information on terrorism-financing patterns and suspect individuals.”

Voronkov added, “Many Member States are paying increasing attention to prosecution strategies and rehabilitation and reintegration programmes.”

On financing for terrorist groups, the US Ambassador Kelley Currie said, “Member States must step up their efforts to crack down on the sources on financing for ISIS and Al-Qaida.”

She added, “In the coming months, we fully expect that ISIS will try to infiltrate legitimate businesses in Iraq and Syria to look for new ways to raise money. All Member States have an obligation to free all the assets on the terrorists on the 1260 list, including ISIS and Al-Qaida. Member States must take that obligation seriously and implement their obligation comprehensively.”

French Ambassador François Delattre told the Council “shifting flows of foreign terrorist fighters should prompt us to consistently adapt our legislations and mechanisms at our disposal, beyond the importance of continuing to prevent radicalization and preclude departures we must preamp the risks posed by potential returnees and those pose by fighters who decide to reach a third country.”

He added “this requires us to horn our detection tools, to scale up information sharing specifically with Interpol we must design appropriate legal responses. This is a tremendous undertaking in the light of the diversity of the individual profiles with respect to French, we are dealing with a large number of women and children.”
