Ischinger: The IS will be a huge challenge for Europe for a long time - Internet

The head of the Munich Security Conference, Wolfgang Ischinger, said that the EU may not have any choice but to engage militarily if the Islamic State group (IS) continues its advance there.

He told Deutche Welle that the group will be a huge challenge for Europe for a long time. Especially in Libya where it is just one reason why the EU needs the necessary capacities to be able to present a credible common security and defense policy.

He added that the IS has successfully filled power vacuums throughout big parts of the Middle East and is stronger than al Qaeda has ever been, especially with its network in Europe and its digital prowess when it comes to propaganda and recruitment.
