Foreign Minister lambasted Pakistan in UNSC, told what is common between Corona and terrorism

 We have to remember that terrorism is as deadly as Corona. Not one of us will be safe from it, while not all of us will be safe. Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said this on Thursday.


He was addressing a high-level meeting of the United Nations Security Council on threats to international peace and security by terrorist acts. During this, he said that India has been deeply affected by the challenges and damages related to terrorism. Jaishankar said, the world should never compromise on the evil of terrorism.

Not allowed to weaken the resolve to fight terrorism

During this, Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that India believes that terrorism should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilization or ethnic group. Terrorism in all its forms, manifestations must be condemned, it cannot be justified in any way. He said that there are some countries which weaken our collective resolve to fight terrorism, this cannot be allowed. ISIS' financial resource mobilization has become stronger, with killings now being rewarded in bitcoin as well. The involvement of vulnerable youth in radical activities through systematic online campaigns remains a matter of serious concern, he said.

 

Scathing Attack on China

During this, the Foreign Minister of India also took a satire on China. He said that countries should not obstruct the requests to designate terrorists without any valid reason. India warned that any double standards or discrimination between terrorists will only hurt us. External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar told the UN Security Council that the international community is of the same view that terrorism in all its forms must be condemned. There can be no exception to this. Nor can any terrorist activity be justified, irrespective of the reason/intent behind it. His statement was in reference to China, a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. China has repeatedly blocked India's effort to designate Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a terrorist.

"Welcome to the conversation today with UK Secretary of State Dominic Raab," Jaishankar tweeted after meeting the UK Foreign Secretary on Wednesday. Jaishankar also discussed the latest developments in Afghanistan with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. He emphasized the need to maintain the operation of airports in Kabul.
