The UN Security Council has unanimously passed the first-ever resolution ordering members to enforce laws against terror financing. UNSC resolution demands all states “ensure that their domestic laws and regulations establish serious criminal offenses” to collect funds or financial resources to terrorist groups or individual criminals.
It also calls on members to create financial intelligence units. Nations that fail to carry out the resolution would face U.N. sanctions.
