( Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has called on the United Nations to form a permanent global coalition to fight terrorism, and not solely to focus on the Islamic State group.

Speaking at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism’s 14th World Summit in Herzliya on Tuesday, Lieberman said Israel welcomes the formation of an international coalition led by the U.S. to fight Islamic State. He suggested that the coalition establish fixed ideals “so that [it] will not change according to the interests of countries and lead to hypocrisy and double standards.”

“If the U.N. has a role, it is firstly to organize a coalition against terrorism,” Lieberman said, according to Israel Hayom. “We need to stop letting all these countries make a profit on the side while fragmenting the united front against terrorism.”
