Lebanon will be committed to United Nations Security Council resolution 2199 regarding the freezing of funding of the Islamic State, al-Nusra Front and other al-Qaida-related extremist groups, reported the daily al-Mustaqbal on Sunday.
Diplomatic sources said that Lebanon is concerned with such a decision “even though it is not a main source of funding of the terrorist groups included in the resolution.”
“Lebanon is committed to all U.N. resolutions, especially those linked to confronting the IS,” they continued.
“Lebanon is among the leading countries that have suffered from the ravages of terrorism,” they stressed.
Resolution 2199 was approved in February to combat terrorism through asset freezes, barring the payment of ransom to such groups, and condemning the destruction of the cultural heritage of Iraq and Syria.
