UN official warns against complacency over IS defeat

United Nations, Feb 11 (UNI) A senior UN counter-terrorism official on Monday warned against complacency over the defeat of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group.

Despite 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, Vladimir 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," said Voronkov, using the initials of another name for the group: the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Xinhua reported.

Briefing the Security Council on a report of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the threat posed by the IS to international peace and security, 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 recognize any geographical or perceived borders. Given the complexity, it is only through a well-coordinated multilateral response that we can address this challenge."
