By Arul Louis New York, Jan 13 : Calling out Pakistan for its support for terrorism and China for providing terrorists cover against sanctions, India’s External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar has unveiled an eight-point plan against the global scourge.
Before his speech on Tuesday at a Security Council ministerial meeting, Tunisia’s Foreign Minister Othman Jerandi, who presided, issued a consensus statement affirming the obligation of all nations to “to prevent and suppress the financing of terrorism” and the need to strengthen international action against terrorism.
The meeting was convened by Tunisia, which holds the Council’s rotating presidency this month, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the landmark anti-terrorism resolution adopted following the 9/11 attacks on the US.
The international community must collectively expose and hold accountable those countries that are “clearly guilty of aiding and supporting terrorism, and wilfully provide financial assistance and safe havens” for terrorists, he said speaking through a videolink.
Jaishankar did not name Pakistan or China, but he made the references to the countries contextually clear.
“We, in India, have seen the crime syndicate responsible for the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts not just given state protection but enjoying 5-star hospitality,” he said in one such reference that pointed to Pakistan hosting Dawood Ibrahim, the crime boss behind the attack that killed 257 people.
