Interpol Chief Warns of Threat of Islamic State

Monday 4 February 2019

LYON (euronews) — The head of the International Police Organisation, Interpol, has warned of the continued threat of the so-called Islamic State.

In an exclusive interview with NBC’s Keir Simmons, Secretary General, Jürgen Stock, said the danger posed by the terrorist group was still “immediate, complex and more international than ever”. His comments come just weeks after US President Donald Trump, announced his troops’ withdrawal from Syria because, he said, the so-called Islamic State group had been defeated.

The move was met with criticism from both inside and outside of the United States. Many countries, especially those participating in the coalition fight against the group, have expressed concern. For them, the withdrawal of US state troops risks leaving a void which could once again become occupied by sympathisers of the terrorist group.
