Islamic State could re-emerge in Syria, Chinese envoy warns

GENEVA (Reuters) – China’s envoy said on Tuesday that there was a danger of Islamic State forces reviving in Syria and called for progress in the political process between the Assad government and opposition.

“There is now a danger of terrorist organizations like ISIS being revived, we see some signs … The fight against terrorism needs to be finished,” Chinese Special Envoy Xie Xiaoyan told reporters after talks with U.N. Special Envoy Geir Pedersen in Geneva.
