Foreign Minister S Jaishankar has called terrorism the biggest threat to humanity. Addressing the UN Security Council on Tuesday, he proposed an eight-point action plan to deal with the threat of terrorism.
Jaishankar was addressing a UNSC ministerial meeting on the topic ‘International cooperation in the fight against terrorism in 20 years and the threat to international peace and security due to terrorist acts’ after the adoption of Proposition 1373 (2001). This month the minister addressed for the first time since the beginning of his two-year term as a temporary member of India in the 15-member Security Council.
Attacking Pakistan on this occasion, he said, “The criminal gangs responsible for the 1993 Mumbai blasts” are not only getting the protection of the government, but are enjoying five-star hospitality. “
The Foreign Minister, pointing to Dawood Ibrahim, said these things somewhere, about which India claims that they are living in Pakistan. In August 2020, Pakistan acknowledged for the first time that Dawood Ibrahim was living in Pakistan.
He said, “First of all, we have to show strong political will to fight against terrorism. There should be no buts in this fight.”
He said that under no circumstances should the international fraternity justify terrorism and allow the glorification of terrorists.
He said that terrorists are only terrorists, they do not have good or bad. According to him, whoever exposes this good and bad difference actually has his own agenda and those who hide their sins are equally responsible.
The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) should continue to identify and remedy weaknesses in anti-money laundering and counter-terror financing frameworks, he added.
