On Friday, The First Secretary in the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations, Paulomi Tripathi said at General Assembly 3rd session on report of the ‘Human Rights Council’ that terrorism is the most serious violation of human right and international community must take resolute action against it to protect the fundamental freedom of innocent people.
Tripathi said, “Terrorism is the most serious violation of human rights which emanates from beyond our borders. The international community must take resolute action against terrorism in all its forms and manifestations to prevent and stop abuse of human rights and fundamental freedoms of innocent people”.
She said, “Adoption of aggressive and confrontational approach and overly intrusive methods, without consultation and consent of the country concerned have been counterproductive, leading only to politicisation of human rights issues”.
