Both Ankara and Washington were obliged to inform the UN Security Council about Islamic State illegally trafficking stolen oil, but didn’t, Russia’s UN envoy said in an interview, adding that this is against the UN resolution on financing terrorism.

 “We’ve got serious complaints about the implementation of [UN] resolution (#2199, banning financing of the terrorist organization),” Vitaly Churkin told RIA Novosti news agency.

 “Under Resolution 2199, adopted on our initiative in February, countries are obliged to provide information (about financing terrorists) to the Security Council – if they have such information. That means the Americans had to provide such information, and of course Turkey, which should have reported any illegal [oil] trade going on there. They didn’t do it,” Churkin said.
