UN official cautions against complacency over IS defeat

Five humanitarian worker is killed every week across the globe

The United Nations (UN) Security Council has been warned against complacency, following the defeat of the Islamic State (IS) terrorists group.

Senior UN counter-terrorism official, Vladimir Voronkov, handed out the warning, Monday, saying the group still posed threat to society.

“In spite of recent successes against the IS and its affiliates, the threat posed by returning and relocating fighters, as well as from individuals inspired by them, remains high and has a global reach,” Voronkov, Under-Secretary-General of UN Counter-Terrorism Office, told the Security Council.

“I would therefore emphasise that the recent ISIL losses should not lead to complacency at any level,’’ Voronkov said, using the initials of another name for the group: the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, briefing the Security Council on a report of UN on the threat posed by the IS to international peace and security, said Voronkov called for a well-coordinated multilateral response to address the challenge.

“The threat of terrorism is a global challenge. It has grown in magnitude and impact over the last several decades.  It does not recognise any geographical or perceived borders.

“Given the complexity, it is only through a well-coordinated multilateral response that we can address this challenge,” Guterres noted.
