India against misuse of new technologies, proposes UNSC counter-terror panel

UNITED NATIONS: While terrorists throughout the world use new technology and cyber tools to attack countries and their citizens, New Delhi's anti-terror body has requested that the Security Council's Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC) convene in India to discuss strategies to combat the threat holistically.

Advanced terrorists today employ not only weaponry, ammunition, and bombs, but also new digital technologies such as cryptocurrencies and NFTs, as well as 3D printing and artificial intelligence.

"The need for member states to comprehensively address and tackle the implications of terrorist exploitation of digital technologies more strategically has never been direr," India's Permanent Representative T.S. Tirumurti, who is also the chair of the CTC, said when announcing the proposal on Monday at the Council.

The meeting "would exclusively focus on this subject and strive to propose a path ahead" in dealing with the issues posed by terrorists who use modern financial technologies to raise and transfer funds, as well as artificial intelligence and 3D printing for attacks, Tirumurti said.

"The digital domain's interconnected nature necessitates that solutions to the domain's complex challenges and threats cannot be tackled in isolation."  "There is a fundamental need to adopt a collaborative rules-based approach and endeavour to ensure its openness, stability, and security," Tirumurti added.
