India has voiced concern over the international community’s less than satisfactory response to terrorist threats posed by outfits such as Boko Haram and Al Shabaab in the African region.
India cautioned that the price of this indifference is immeasurable.
India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin said, the ever expanding terror networks have endangered the peace and security of African region in unprecedented ways. He said, from Boko Haram to Al Shabaab, these terrorist networks have proved time and again ever more connected to terrorist networks from all around the world.
He noted that while in the African Union, the UN has a willing partner, the question that the Council needs to answer is whether it is ready to do what is required to make a difference where it matters most.
