UN Security Council deplored the apparent murder of a Japanese citizen Kenji Goto, by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), despite their demand for his immediate release, and strongly condemned this heinous and cowardly murder.
This crime is, yet again, a tragic reminder of the increasing dangers journalists and others face every day in Syria, said the Security Council in a statement.
It also once again demonstrates the brutality of ISIL, which is responsible for thousands of abuses against the Syrian and Iraqi people, it added.
The members of the Security Council underlined the need to bring perpetrators of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice, and stressed that those responsible for the killing of Kenji Goto shall be held accountable. They also urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with Japan and all other relevant authorities in this regard, the statement added.
UNSC expressed their deep sympathy and condolences to the family of the victim, to the Government of Japan, as well as to the families of all victims of ISIL.
The 15 members stressed again that ISIL must be defeated and that the intolerance, violence and hatred it espouses must be stamped out.
Furthermore, the statement noted that the members of the Council further emphasized that such continued acts of barbarism perpetrated by ISIL do not intimidate them but rather stiffen their resolve that there has to be a common effort amongst Governments and institutions, including those in the region most affected, to counter ISIL, Al-Nusra Front and all other individuals, groups, undertakings, and entities associated with Al-Qaeda, as the Council resolved in UN Security Council resolution 2170 (2014).
The members of the Security Council demanded the immediate, safe and unconditional release of all those who are kept hostage by ISIL, Al-Nusra Front and all other individuals, groups, undertakings, and entities associated with Al-Qaeda.
The statement recalled that, in accordance with international humanitarian law, journalists, media professionals and associated personnel engaged in dangerous professional missions in areas of armed conflict are considered as civilians and shall be respected and protected as such.
The UNSC also recalled their demand that all parties to an armed conflict comply fully with the obligations applicable to them under international humanitarian law, including as related to the protection of civilians in armed conflict.
The members of the Security Council further recalled that ISIL is included on the Al-Qaeda Sanctions List and is thus subject to the asset freeze and arms embargo in resolution 2161 (2014) and further recalled that any individual or entity that provides financial or material support to the group, including the provision of arms or recruits, is eligible to be added to the Al-Qaeda Sanctions List and subject to sanctions measures.
By all means, the Security Council reaffirmed the need to combat, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations, threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts, and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed, the statement concluded.
On his part, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemned in the strongest terms the "barbaric" murder of Kenji Goto.
His death, he stressed, underscores the violence that so many have been subjected to in Iraq and Syria.
In a note to the correspondents, Ban once again, called for the unconditional release of all hostages held by Daesh and others.
Ban then extended his deepest condolences to Goto's family, as well as the people and government of Japan.
