"the Military intelligence and security service (Must) warn that the member IS able to come back and establish new bases elsewhere in the world."
"– It is one of the things that all the world's intelligence agencies are looking for right now, " says Mustchefen Gunnar Karlson."
"Even if the Islamic state (IS) in all material respects, defeated militarily in Syria and Iraq is the threat from the member not gone, the notes Must, in its annual report."
"– They still have both the desire and the intention and many of them organized within the caliphate is still there. Many have the same intentions and the same abilities, so you must not relax and think that now this is solved, " says Gunnar Karlson."
"– They can have a ability to come back."
"most Likely, it will happen in this case, in areas where the states, in practice, they lack power and influence. For example, the tried member a few years ago to acquire a foothold in the torn Libya. Etableringsförsök have also occurred in the violent Sinai peninsula in Egypt."
"– It is one of the things that all the world's intelligence agencies are looking for right now – we see someone thought of Daesh (read IS) or al-Qaeda to establish a safe base somewhere in the world? We see no such thing right now, but unfortunately there are not areas in our world where the states have little territorial control, and where the possibility would be, " says Gunnar Karlson."

"HH: Have you been involved in?"
"– It is clear that it would be very fun to be able to say to exactly where the piece of the puzzle led to the spectacular action. But unfortunately, this is often not so, but it is more about a painstaking building of the knowledge base to understand better, know where to look and can eventually take action, " says Mustchefen."
"Suspected IS terrorists who want to return to Sweden has been identified as a major security threat. Around 100 Swedish ICE-supporter is considered today to be left in the conflict zone and it is Must to collect information about how the threat from them looks like."
"– It is something we are working with, but what exactly we know is nothing I can tell you, " says Gunnar Karlson."
"HH: do you Have to interrogate prisoners of ICE-swedes on the spot?"
"– What methods we use, I am talking about so I do not in this case either, " he says."
"Mustchefen also warns against a unilateral focus on the ICE. In the background, al-Qaeda continued to operate and the boundaries between the groups are not always very sharp."
"– We see how both individuals and groups can move between one and the other, depending on the structures, were you think you can get support or where you feel it is the greatest potential for success, " he says."
"Gunnar Karlson does not exclude that in the future there may arise completely new constellations."
"– They are very flexible and one reason for this is that they want to make life difficult for such as us."
