SAUDI ARABIA WELCOMES UNSC RESOLUTION TO HALT TERRORISM FINANCING

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Feb 17 – Saudi Arabia’s Cabinet welcomed on Monday, the UN Security Council resolution, calling for drying up the sources of financing for terrorism and tightening grip on parts, under the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (IS) control.

In a statement, carried by Saudi Press Agency (SPA), the Cabinet’s session, chaired by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, in Riyadh, on Monday afternoon, reiterated that the kingdom was among countries that called for combating terrorism and criminalising its supporters.

The Cabinet strongly condemned the killing of Egyptian hostages in Libya by the IS militants, describing this move as a “criminal act.” It referred to efforts of the Ministerial Council of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and its decisions, issued in its extraordinary meeting in Riyadh last Saturday, on the situation in Yemen.

The Cabinet renewed its absolute condemnation and rejection of the “Houthi coup” and all its consequences, and attempts to impose a fait accompli by force.
