‘States whose primary export is terror cry victim’: Jaishankar slams Pakistan

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that terrorism is Cancer that affects everyone like pandemic.

During his virtual address at The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), Jaishankar made an apparent reference to Pakistan.

He said, “We have long known intellectually that terrorism is a Cancer that potentially affects everyone just as pandemics potentially impact all humanity.

And yet in both cases, globalised focus response to either challenge have tended to emerge only when there has been sufficient disruption created by a spectacular event.

19 years from the tragedy of 9/11 and 12 years from our own 26/11, we have today a range of mechanisms in place to contend with terrorists.

These include the FATFs, various UN Sanctions Committees and the Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate but we still lack a comprehensive convention on international terrorism with the membership of the UN still wrestling with certain foundational principles.

All the while states that have turned the production of terrorists into a primary export, have attempted by the dint of blind denials to paint themselves also as victims of terror.” Watch the full video for more.
