UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The United Nations Security Council appears set to ban all trade in antiquities from war-torn Syria, threaten sanctions on anyone buying oil from Islamic State and al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front militants and condemn paying kidnap ransoms to the groups.
The United States worked with its veto-wielding counterparts on the council – Russia, China, Britain and France – to draft a resolution that was to be circulated to the remaining members of the 15-nation council on Friday, a U.S. official said.
