Security Council condemns Bali attack

Security Council condemns Bali attack as threat to international peace

14 October – Denouncing Saturday's deadly terrorist attack in Bali, Indonesia, the United Nations Security Council today called on all countries to back efforts to bring those responsible to justice.


In a resolution adopted unanimously this evening, the Council condemned "in the strongest possible terms" not only the bombing in Bali but also "other recent terrorist acts in various countries."


Those incidents, like any act of international terrorism, constitute "a threat to international peace and security," the Council stated, voicing its reinforced determination to combat all forms of the scourge in accordance with its responsibilities under the UN Charter.


All States were urged "to work together urgently and to cooperate with and provide support and assistance, as appropriate, to the Indonesian authorities in their efforts to find and bring to justice the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of these terrorist attacks."


The Council also expressed condolences to the Government and people of Indonesia and to the victims of the bomb attacks and their families.
