Spain’s Top Diplomat Says Europe Must Be Alert to Returning IS Fighters

MADRID – Spain’s Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis said the defeat of the Islamic State terror organization in Iraq and Syria will have repercussions as fighters of a European nationality return to the continent, as revealed in an interview with EFE released on Saturday.

Dastis, a conservative, said during an interview with EFE that Europe had to remain alert to the fact that a number of European IS fighters could return from the Middle East, insisting that extremist terrorism had a huge capacity to adapt.

“What we fear is that those (IS) fighters, who can be from somewhere outside of the Middle East, particularly from Europe, come back,” said the diplomat. “We must be alert to prevent that such people commit acts of terror or attempt to radicalize others.”

He described the situation as serious and said intense work was required to avoid repeat terror attacks such as those that struck Barcelona on Aug. 17 or in Paris in November 2015.

Dastis branded United States President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as counter-productive but said it did not mean Washington could no longer act as a mediator in the Israel-Palestine peace process.
