One of the key moments of 2015 was the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin for the formation under UN auspices of a broad anti-terrorist coalition, said the Minister. The UN Secretariat should give honest and detailed reports on implementation of UN security Council resolutions on the suppression of the financing of terrorism, Lavrov said.
“Our active participation in the fight against terrorism contributed to the adoption of several important UN security Council resolutions aimed at suppressing the financing of terrorism, to curb the phenomenon of foreign terrorist fighters. We are seeking honest execution and honest, detailed reports of the UN Secretariat on how and who carries out their obligations under these important documents”, – said the Minister.
