Some countries are nurturing terrorism

Without naming Pakistan and China, India’s Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar’s criticism at the United Nations Security Council

Editorial comment

  • Why is India hesitating to name Pakistan and China on an international platform ? How will one, who hesitates to name the enemy, be able to conquer them ? It won’t be surprising if such a question arises in people’s minds.

New York – Terrorism is a threat to international peace and security.  The evolving phenomenon of terrorism in some countries is extremely dangerous and poses a new set of challenges in the collective efforts of the fight against terrorism. They should not be permitted to promote it, appealed India’s Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar while chairing a high-level meeting of the United Nations Security Council.

 S. Jaishankar further said,

1. The challenges and problems associated with terrorism have a profound impact on India. Terrorism should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilization or faith.

2. Terrorism in any form cannot be justified and must be condemned.

 3. The terrorist organisation Islamic State has strengthened its roots and financial resources. The reward for killing is now being paid in the form of Bitcoin.
