UN Security Council condemns India bomb attacks

UN Security Council condemns India bomb attacks

The United Nations Security Council today condemned “in the strongest terms” the bomb attacks that caused hundreds of deaths and injuries in Mumbai and other parts of India yesterday, calling them “heinous acts of terrorism” and urging all States to cooperate with the Indian Government in bringing those responsible to justice.

“The Security Council reaffirms that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security,” the 15-member body said through a consensus statement read out by its President for July, Ambassador Jean-Marc de la Sablière of France.

It reminded States of their obligation to combat terrorism under Council resolutions, while at the same time complying with international human rights, refugee and humanitarian law.
