India has called for strict action against countries that provide shelter to terrorists, although they did not specifically name Pakistan. Ruchira Kamboj, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, urged the world to avoid categorizing terrorism as well. Kamboj made these statements during an ambassadorial-level briefing of the UN Office of Counter-Terrorism on Tuesday.
During the briefing, Kamboj highlighted the seriousness and reality of the threat of terrorism, which continues to spread despite the best efforts of cooperation between countries, particularly in Africa and Asia. In a veiled attack on Pakistan, Kamboj pointed out countries that harbor terrorists and called for them to be held accountable for their actions.
Demand for action against the countries giving shelter to terrorists
Kamboj emphasized that the threat of terrorism can be tackled through sustained and multi-pronged action by the international community. She suggested that countries lacking the capabilities to deal with terrorism should be helped, while those harboring terrorists should be held accountable.
She also spoke about the need to avoid categorizing terrorism, stating that words like “right wing” or “left wing” are often misused for vested interests. Kamboj stressed the importance of supporting the global counter-terrorism strategy and condemned all kinds of terrorist attacks, regardless of religion, faith, culture, caste, or prejudice.
Mentioned Statement Of PM Modi’s
Kamboj referred to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement that one act of terrorism is too many, and one death is too many. She emphasized that India is fully committed to ending terrorism and will not rest until this goal is achieved.
In summary, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations has called for strict action against countries that provide shelter to terrorists, highlighting the seriousness of the threat of terrorism and the need for sustained and multi-pronged action by the international community. The representative also emphasized the need to avoid categorizing terrorism and condemned all kinds of terrorist attacks, regardless of religion, faith, culture, caste, or prejudice.
