Israel Backs Russia’s Plan To Fight Islamic State Under UN Auspices

UN – Israel supports Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s initiative to combat the Islamic State under the auspices of the United Nations, Israel’s Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom told Sputnik on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York.



Earlier on Wednesday, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov presented a resolution on joining efforts against the Islamic State to the members of the UN Security Council.

“I think if they will fight Daesh [Islamic State], if they will fight al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, all those crazy and lunatic organizations, we are totally in favor,” Shalom stated on Wednesday.

The resolution is based on documents previously adopted by the Security Council with an emphasis on coherent counter-terrorism based on norms and principles of international law, according to Lavrov.
