India urges UN to adopt anti-terror convention

Published 13 October 2011

Last week, India urged the United Nations to adopt the Comprehensive Convention against International Terrorism; speaking to the UN General Assembly, India’s deputy chairman Rahman Khan argued that the UN’s global counterterrorism strategy would be incomplete if it did not pass the convention; “India believes that adoption of the Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism (CCIT) would provide a solid legal basis for the fight against terrorism. In our view the UN global counter-terrorism strategy is incomplete in the absence of such a comprehensive convention,” Khan said.
