Pak-based LeT and JeM operate with impunity: Jaishankar tells UNSC

                                                                                                                                                                          Nirendra Dev

 

Events unfolding in Afghanistan have naturally enhanced global concerns about their implications for both regional and international security. 

 

New Delhi: The UNSC should not take "a selective, tactical or even a complacent view" of the problem of terrorism; India has pointed out at the global body and maintained that Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Toiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed continue to operate with both impunity and encouragement.

 

"Whether it is in Afghanistan or against India, groups like Lashkar-e-Toiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed continue to operate with both impunity and encouragement. It is, therefore, vital that this Council (UNSC) does not take a selective, tactical or even a complacent view of the problems we face," External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar chairing the UN Security Council briefing on “Threats to International Peace and Security Caused by Terrorists Act,” in New York.

 

Events unfolding in Afghanistan have naturally enhanced global concerns about their implications for both regional and international security.

 

"The heightened activities of the proscribed Haqqani Network justifies this growing anxiety," he said.

 

"We must never countenance sanctuaries for terrorists or overlook the raising of their resources. And when we see state hospitality being extended to those with innocents’ blood on their hands, we should never lack the courage to call out this double-speak," he said, obviously about Pakistan.

 

Dr Jaishankar said, "The latest report of the Secretary-General has provided another stark reminder to all of us that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, ISIL (Daesh), continues to pose a critical threat to international peace and security. ISIL (Daesh) remains active in Syria and Iraq, and the flow of funds has continued, and rewards for killings, I believe, are now even being paid in Bitcoins!

 

"The radicalization of vulnerable youth by systematic online propaganda campaigns remains a serious concern," the minister said.

 

He further said: "In our own immediate neighborhood, ISIL-Khorasan (ISIL-K) has become more energetic and is constantly seeking to expand its footprint. This should be taken seriously."

 

Dr Jaishankar said the international community holds a collective view that terrorism must be condemned in all its forms and manifestations. "However, in spite of the progress we have made to tighten the legal, security, financing and other frameworks to combat terrorism, terrorists are constantly finding newer ways of motivating, resourcing and executing acts of terror."

 

In yet another instance of targeting Pakistan, Dr Jaishankar said, "Unfortunately, there are also some countries who seek to undermine or subvert our collective resolve to fight terrorism."

 

That cannot be allowed to pass, he asserted.
