UN Security Council Adopts Binding Resolution against ISIS

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) unanimously adopted Resolution No. 2178 (2014) at a special sitting of the UNSC where most members were represented by their heads of state and the meeting itself was chaired by President Obama.ScreenClip[22]

The resolution was passed under Chapter VII of the UN Charter which makes it binding on all member states. The resolution emphasizes on international cooperation to undertake counter terrorism measures to stop the ISIS threat. It places specific obligations on member states to take steps to stop the flow of foreign terrorist fighters (FTF) to the area of conflict. The resolution also calls upon the UN agencies to play their part in helping nations assess and curb the threat of FTF. The resolution is a milestone because it requires the member to take affirmative action to prevent recruitment and movement of FTF instead of merely condemning FTF.

Earlier, in August, Resolution No. 2170 (2014) was adopted by the UNSC which condemned violence and the abuse of human rights by extremist groups like ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
