UN Proposes New Sanctions for ISIS Oil Trading

Friday, 06 Feb 2015 11:49 AM

A proposed U.N. resolution to crack down on the financing of terrorists calls for sanctions on individuals and companies trading oil produced by the Islamic State group and other al-Qaida-linked organizations.

The Russian-sponsored resolution, obtained Friday by The Associated Press, would also require all 193 U.N. member states to take "appropriate steps" to prevent the trade in antiquities and other items of historical, cultural, rare scientific and religious importance illegally removed from Syria. A similar ban already exists for Iraqi antiquities.

The draft resolution would reaffirm that it is illegal to pay ransom to individuals and groups that are already subject to U.N. sanctions, and that all countries are required to freeze such funds.
