The Indian Express Reports Indian FM:
Swaraj also said the RIC has supported a 1996 proposal tabled by India in the United Nations on countering terrorism. “Both Russia and China have accepted the proposal,” she said, indicating that the Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism (CCIT) may finally see the light of day.
The is a clear signal that the regional forces have united on one point that terrorism has to be exterminated and any kind of terrorism be it state sponsored would not be tolerated. Pakistan has yet again failed in its foreign policy in another front. The negotiations on this resolution were in a deadlock state on the “definition of terrorism” but it looks like after the multiplication of terrorism in the recent times in the world and especially in the region, the countries are going for an immediate solution.
In the past Pakistan has been questioned for its role in Kashmir insurgency but after 9/11 Pakistan on international pressure preferred to just ban the organizations like Lashkar-e-Taiba and let them work under the umbrella of a different name, Jamat-ud-Dawa. This policy has again been repeated by banning JuD and letting it to work under the name of Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation. But it seems that this time the world is not interested in buying it. We also have to keep in mind that this policy of changing name and keeping the activities under other names were also copied by other organizations, some of them are now threat to Pakistan’s internal security. Thus, this policy has already failed in Pakistan itself. The tragedy is even after the 16th December brutal attack the claims of targeting good and bad terrorists was a mere lip service and these have led to another tragic event of Shikarpur Imambargah suicide bombing.
Pakistan if wanted to live in this modern day and don’t want to become another Afghanistan of Sudan have to eradicate all kind of terrorists before the world stop listening to us and before the terrorists themselves become more powerful from the state.
