On February 3, 2015 the so- called “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (IS) posted on Internet a file containing a video of blatant murder of Muath Kasasbeh, 1st Lieutenant of Royal Jordanian Air Force. Jordanian pilot was taken captive by IS militants on December 24th 2014 after his plane was crashed in northern Syria.
Ukraine condemns Muath Kasabeh’s killing and expresses sincere condolences to his family, to His Majesty King Abdullah II, to all Jordanians.
The murder of Royal Jordanian Air Force’s pilot, assassination of Japanese hostages Haruna Yukawa and Kenji Goto together with other crimes confirm that IS terrorist activity is a global threat. Those who executed these acts of terror must be brought to justice.
In Ukraine we are certain that global community must give adequate response to the terror, whether it appears in Ukrainian Mariupol, in Syrian Kobani or in Iraqi Fallujah.
