Many countries around the world are suffering from the problem of terrorism. India has once again raised the issue of terrorism in the UN General Assembly. Participating in the UN General Assembly's dispute over the 7th review of the Global Counter Terrorism Strategy, India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador TS Tirumurthy, said that the international community has admitted that the crisis of terrorism is serious and can be defeated only through the collective efforts of all UN member states universally and without exception.
"After 9/11, we recognized that terrorism present in one part of the world could directly affect the other part of the world and we all came together collectively to fight terrorism." The envoy said that the international community should not forget that before the 9/11 terror attack, the whole world was divided into "your terrorists" or "my terrorists".
"After two decades, we are now trying to break us once again under the guise of emerging crises like racial and ethnic extremism, violent nationalism, right wing extremism. I hope the Member Countries will not forget history," Tirumurthy said. The UN General Assembly reviews the strategy every two years, making it a living document in line with the member states' counterterrorism priorities. The UN agency said the General Assembly reviews the plan and considers adopting a resolution on this occasion. Tirumurthy told all the Member States that it is necessary for us not to lose the benefits that we have achieved so far. We must all ensure that no one has to give any excuse or justification for terrorism, because it may undermine our collective dispute.
