Explanatory note

In the UN Security Council Resolution 2178 (2014) on threats to international peace and security caused by terrorists acts, which was adopted unanimously on 24 September 2014, the terrorist organization in question is referred to as ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and Levant). We should stick to the agreed language in UN.
