India has told the UN Security Council that violence against girls and women by terrorists continues.
He also called for adopting a policy of zero tolerance towards all forms of terrorism, saying that it should be condemned in the strongest terms.
India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations and Ambassador Ruchira Kamboj said on Tuesday that member states should create an environment conducive to participation and inclusion in the political and decision-making process.
“Terrorism and extremism are a threat to global peace and security, and women and girls are disproportionately affected by this,” she said.
Inaugurating the debate on the topic ‘Women, peace and security: resolution 1325, towards the 25th anniversary’ at the UN Security Council, Kamboj said violence against women and girls by terrorists continued.
He said, “Violence should be tightened and zero tolerance policy should be adopted towards terrorism.”
It is noteworthy that the Security Council had passed resolution 1325 related to women, peace and security in October 2000.
