India and UK push for boosting global efforts to deal with terrorism

By ET News

India and the UK have strongly condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and called for strengthening international cooperation to comprehensively combat the menace, including cross-border terrorism in South Asia.

At a two-day virtual meeting of the India-UK joint working Group on counter-terrorism, the two sides reviewed the threats posed by UN-proscribed terrorists and terrorist entities, the Ministry of External Affairs said on Monday.

“It was stressed that all countries should take immediate and irreversible action to ensure that no territory under their control is used for terrorist attacks on another and to expeditiously bring to justice the perpetrators of such attacks,” it said in a statement.

The MEA said the two countries exchanged views on the proscription of terrorist individuals and entities as a tool to combat terrorism besides discussing ways to cooperate in multilateral fora such as the UN and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
