Szijjarto: Ex-IS fighters must be punished

November 19th, 2019

Instead of talking about taking back foreign fighters who joined the Islamic State militant group, the discussion within the international community should be about punishing them, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said. The defeat of the Islamic State brings with it new security challenges for the world, Szijjarto told MTI, summarising his address to a debate of the United Nations Security Council in New York. These challenges, he said, were rooted in the fact that tens of thousands of foreign fighters had joined IS in recent years. "More than 5,000 of them are European Union citizens," the minister added. "We're shocked to see … efforts to have these foreign fighters accepted back into European societies," he said. These fighters "should be punished and imprisoned in the place where they committed their crimes."
