EAM Dr. S Jaishankar says world must never compromise with the evil of terrorism; chairs UN security council meet

External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar today said the world must never compromise with the evil of terrorism and terrorism in all its forms and manifestations must be condemned. He chaired the UN Security Council briefing on “Threats to International Peace and Security Caused by Terrorists Act” this evening in New York.
He said there cannot be any exception or any justification for any act of terrorism, regardless of motivations behind such acts. The Minister stressed that the menace of terrorism cannot and should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilisation, or any ethnic group.
However, Dr Jaishankar said inspite of the progress made to tighten legal, security, financing and other frameworks to combat terrorism, terrorists are constantly finding newer ways of motivating, resourcing and executing acts of terror. He said unfortunately there are also some countries who seek to undermine or subvert collective resolve to fight terrorism and this cannot be allowed to pass.
He added that ISIL continues to pose a critical threat to international peace and security. ISIL remains active in Syria and Iraq and its affiliates are growing in strength. The Minister said the radicalisation of vulnerable youth remains a serious concern.
