In a speech before the Security Council, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations Masood Khan struck an anxious tone, demanding that the international community must exterminate ISIS.
“We must all, collectively, oppose and defeat its evil ideology of ‘hate, murder and destroy’. We must remain united in our fight against this new face of terrorism and violent extremism,” Masood Khan said in his October 21 speech.
He also urged that the UN should “use all diplomatic means at their disposal to prevent further deterioration.” He went on to censure the international community for not acting quickly enough against this “rising tide of primeval barbarism and criminality.”
“It is now clear that if the Syrian conflict had been addressed two years ago, we would not have witnessed the rise of ISIS,” he said, adding, “We should hold fast to this lesson we have learned in or contemporary history.”
