Terrorism is a global threat, coordinated efforts required, says Farooq AbdullahDecember 2nd, 2008 - 12:52 pm ICT by ANI
Srinagar, Dec 2 (ANI): National Conference leader and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah has said that terrorism has swept the world and a coordinated effort is required to tackle this threat.
In the wake of last week’’s deadly Mumbai terror attacks, Abdullah has said the UN Security Council should plan out a course of action.
“Our leaders feel that we should present our issue before the world and raise this issue in the Security Council. Around 30 people of different nationalities have been killed in this attack. Nationals of Japan, America, Britain and Israel have been also killed. So, we all should knock the doors of the Security Council and the United Nations,” Abdullah told reporters after filing the nomination for state assembly polls from Hazratbal constituency in Srinagar on Monday.
“We should call for a united action against terrorism because India cannot fight alone. The government of Pakistan is new and they are weak. It looks as if they have little power,” he added.
Abdullah further said the Mumbai attacks were a setback but would not derail the peace talks.
“As Kabul embassy blast did affect our relationship, I think Mumbai blast will also derail the relations. But, I think the talks will continue and the window remain open for dialogue,” he added. (ANI)
