India Calls for International Treaty on Terror; Nirupama Rao to Visit Kabul

India has called for an international terror treaty to deal with the growing menace of terrorism following suicide bomb explosion outside its embassy in Kabul. Besides, Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao will visit Afghanistan on Friday to assess the situation in the aftermath of the attack, which killed 17 people.

India’s envoy to the United Nations Hardeep Singh Puri, voicing concerns over the blast, asked the world leaders to negotiate an international treaty to tackle terrorism expeditiously.

“Our Embassy in Kabul was again subjected to yet another terrorist attack, which has resulted in injury of Indian security personnel as well as death of large number of Afghan civilians,” Puri told the committee of the General Assembly that handles a range of social, humanitarian affairs and human rights issues.

He stressed that besides, condemning terrorism, it is important world leaders strengthen the legal framework in the fight against terrorism.

Earlier, the UN Chief Ban Ki-moon condemned the attacks at the Indian embassy. The Security Council also deplored the “reprehensible” attack demanding that those responsible be brought to justice.

Dreaded militant outfit Taliban has claimed the responsibility for attack.
