At the review meeting of UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, India said that nations which sponsor and provide safe havens to terrorists must be made accountable.
“Of all the threats that are global in nature and should concern us all, terrorism is amongst the most serious. It is one that impacts lives of innocent people across the world,” India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin said.
India’s representative voiced that no belief, justification, political cause or argument can be used to justify the acts of terrorism.
“No country remains immune to this threat. Victims of such heinous attacks also do not belong only to a single country or ethnicity or faith,” Akbaruddin said.
The fifth review meeting, which has 193 members, adopted a resolution on ways to redouble efforts to work swiftly, collectively and effectively in rooting out the scourge.
Earlier also, India has been vocal about need to stop state-sponsored terrorism. India and UAE had said that it is the responsibility of all states to control the activities of the “non-state actors” and curb all support to terrorists on their soil.
