“There are some nations that use terrorism as an instrument of state policy,” he said. “Indeed one single nation in South Asia is spreading these agents of terror in countries of our region.” He did not mention Pakistan by name but left no one in doubt which country he was referring to.
The Prime Minister also indicated his unhappiness over China’s refusal to support UN sanctions against Pakistan based terrorists when he said that “those who sponsor and support terrorism must be isolated and sanctioned, not rewarded.”
“For us a terrorist is a terrorist.” the PM said, adding that “India has a policy of zero tolerance to terrorism because anything less than that is not enough.
The Prime Minister also said that India “appreciates the G20 initiative on combating financing of terrorism”.The G20 issued a joint communique saying it “will tackle all sources, techniques and channels of terrorist financing” and remains “committed to effectively exchanging information, freezing terrorist assets, and criminalising terrorist financing”.
India has also supported G20 efforts “to eliminate safe havens for economic offenders, track down and unconditionally extradite money launderers and break down the web of complex international regulations and excessive banking secrecy that hide the corrupt and their deeds”.
