Pakistan urges UNSC to designate three Indian nationals as terrorists
June 24, 2020
ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Pakistan on Wednesday said that Islamabad approached the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for designating three Indian nationals as global terrorists in 2019. In a statement, Foreign Office spokesperson said that Pakistan urged the Sanctions Committee of the UNSC to list three Indian nationals objectively and transparently as terrorists after having been designated by Pakistan for their involvement in financing, sponsoring and organizing terrorism in the country. “These individuals were financing, sponsoring and organizing terrorism inside Pakistan by providing financial, technical and material support to terrorist groups including TTP, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar and others. We are disappointed that Pakistan’s proposal to designate Venumadhav Dongara as a terrorist has been objected to,” the spokesperson remarked. However, she hoped that the listing requests of other three Indian nationals will be given due consideration by the UNSC 1267 Sanctions Committee in an objective and transparent manner. She said that taking advantage of the prolonged conflict in Pakistan’s neighbourhood, India had fomented terrorism inside Pakistan by providing training, financial and material support to terrorist groups to kill innocent people in Pakistan. “These Indian nationals are now residing in India with impunity which vindicates Pakistan’s position that India is a state-sponsor of terrorism,” the spokesperson added.
