After China Kashmir issue at UNSC, India says it has been a “victim” of cross-border terrorism
India suggested that the UN should enhance its coordination with the global terrorism watchdogs like Financial Action Task Force (FATF)
India said that it has been a “victim of terrorism sponsored from across our border” a day after China raised the Kashmir debate at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), according to a report by India.com.
“India strongly condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. There can be no justification of any form of terrorism. And looking for root causes for terrorism is akin to finding a needle in a haystack,” the report quoted India as saying at High-Level Open Debate of the UNSC.
“India has been a victim of terrorism sponsored from across our border. We experienced first-hand cruel linkage between transnational organized crime and terrorism,” it added.
The India.com report quoted the Indian envoy as saying that “unsurprisingly” the perpetrators of 1993 Mumbai blasts, which resulted in a loss of more than 250 innocent lives, continue to enjoy patronage in a neighboring county.
India suggested that the UN should enhance its coordination with the global terrorism watchdogs like Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which are known to have set global standards for “preventing and combating money laundering & terrorist financing” in the past, said the report.
