The United Nations Security Council met with Interpol on Friday to discuss how best to work together to fight violent extremism.
UN chief Ban Ki-moon opened the meeting with a call for tackling the root causes of extremism.
"Full compliance with international law is central to success. This includes, in particular, international human rights law, international refugee law and international humanitarian law. When counter-terrorism efforts ignore the rule of law and violate fundamental rights, they not only betray the values they seek to uphold, but can also end up further fueling violent extremism," said Ban.
