Tehran, Aug.28 (ANI):Intervening during an interactive debate on 'Lasting Peace through Joint Global Governance' at a preparatory ministerial meeting here on Tuesday, External Affairs Minister S.
M. Krishna described terrorism as the biggest scourge of modern times, and added that terrorists were targeting the socio-economic fabric of all pluralistic societies.
We need to raise the fight against terrorism to a higher level. There should be zero tolerance towards terrorism. It is high time that we demonstrate the necessary political will and agree on a Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism at the United Nations, said Krishna.
He also highlighted the fact that piracy off the coast of Somalia has brought immense human sufferings while posing a serious threat to sea-lanes of maritime commerce.
We need concerted international action to combat this menace, preferably under the aegis of the UN, the minister said. (ANI)
