Security Council Condemns Terrorist Bombings

Security Council Condemns Weekend Terrorist Bombings In New Delhi

New York, Oct 31 2005

The United Nations Security Council today strongly condemned the series of deadly bomb attacks that shook New Delhi, India, on Saturday and urged all countries to cooperate with the country's authorities to bring those responsible to justice.

"Terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed," the Council said a statement read out on behalf of the members by Foreign Minister Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu of Romania, which currently holds the rotating presidency of the 15-member body.

"The Security Council stresses the importance of bringing the perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of violence to justice," he said, urging all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and the Council's counter-terrorism resolutions, to "cooperate actively with the Indian authorities" towards this end.

The statement reiterated the Council's determination "to combat all forms of terrorism, in accordance with its responsibilities under the Charter of the United Nations."
