JuD remains terror outfit despite charity veneer: RiceDecember 17th, 2008 - 2:11 pm ICT by ANI
United Nations, Dec.17 (ANI): US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has said that the proscribed Jamaat-ud-Dawa remains a terror outfit in the eyes of the international community, notwithstanding its protestations of being a charity organization.
Talking to reporters at the UN headquarters in New York, Rice said: “Pakistan is going to have to untangle the difficult circumstances the Jamaat offers -they are - because I understand there are so called charitable activities. But we learned - the United States learned the hard way - that sometimes these are too intertwined with organizations that have terrorists ties and have just been designated here.”
She said she expected Pakistan to “adhere completely” to UN Security Council sanctions on Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and other terrorist organisations in letter and spirit.
“So we will be pressing all member states to adhere completely and to the letter of the designations that the United Nations has taken,” The News quoted Rice, as saying. (ANI)
