The United Nations Security Council strongly condemned the terrorist attacks in Karachi (on Chinese Consulate) and Orakzai tribal district where Shia Muslims were made targets by terrorists.
In a press statement, the Security Council expressed appreciation for the swift response by Pakistani authorities.
The Council members stressed that “terrorism in all its forms and manifestations” constituted one of the most serious threats to international peace and security.
“Any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed,” they said, underscoring the need to hold the perpetrators, organisers, financiers and sponsors of terrorist acts accountable.
The Council called upon all UN member states to cooperate for this purpose.
