Pakistan urges Security Council to keep its focus on terrorism

Listen /

Hina Rabbani Khar

With terrorism mutating daily into newer and different forms, the Security Council must continue to focus on it, Pakistan's Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar told the chamber on Tuesday.

She said terrorism threatens all countries and can only be defeated through collective action by the international community.

"Terrorists' misleading, distorted and malicious narrative and their demented ideology that justifies killing of innocent people must be quashed by the international community, by the UN Security Council. It is our responsibility to counter terrorist propaganda. Our stories about human dignity and values should be louder than their criminal sagas. We must move in concert to decrease the ideological space in which terrorists operate freely." (28 secs)

The Foreign Minister chaired the Security Council debate on the threat of terrorism to international peace.

She said terrorism and extremism cannot and should not be associated with any religion, race, value system or society.
