UNSC should not be misused with “retaliatory intent to name innocent civilians as terrorist”, says India

In reference to Pakistan’s failed attempt to get four Indian nationals listed under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee, India said that the UN Security Council should not be misused by countries with “retaliatory intent to name innocent civilians as terrorist” without credible evidence by invoking non-transparent working methods and procedures.

“We believe that the UN Security Council continues to be an effective forum for the maintenance of international peace and security and combating terrorism. However, it should also be ensured that the forum is not misused by countries with retaliatory intent to name innocent civilians as a terrorist without credible evidence by invoking non-transparent working methods and procedures,” said First Secretary and Legal Adviser in India’s Permanent Mission to the UN, Yedla Umasankar.

It must be noted that Pakistan had submitted the names of Indian nationals Angara Appaji, Gobinda Patnaik, Ajoy Mistry and Venumadhav Dongara to be designated under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council.
