The United Nations and Russia will jointly present a resolution tomorrow to the United Nations that will expand terror sanctions to ISIS and give countries more flexibility to target the extremists’ financing.
The current sanctions regime applies to Al Qaeda and its direct affiliates but not ISIS, an offshoot of the group.
‘What we’ll be doing is elevating ISIL and putting it on that same level and turning those tools and that same experience that we’ve built up internationally against ISIL,’ the acting Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes, Adam Szubin, said today.
Well. Now that the UN is involved it’s all over for ISIS.
