New Delhi: India on Tuesday banned trade with entities having link to the dreaded global terror outfit ISIS, complying with a UN resolution o act against militants active in oil-rich countries such as Iraq, Syria and Libya.

“In compliance with United Nations Security Council Resolution …, trade in oil and refined oil products, modular refineries and related materials, besides items of cultural (including antiquities), scientific and religious importance is prohibited,” India’s commerce ministry said in a notification.

The rapid rise of Islamic State, which first emerged in Syria and Iraq, is worrying Western powers who fear the militant group will forge a base just across the Mediterranean from mainland Europe.
