GOA: Without specifically mentioning India, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari urged SCO summit attendees to refrain from using terrorism as a diplomatic negotiating chip. This occurs as India expresses worry about terrorism.
Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, the Indian minister of external affairs, spoke before Bilawal and emphasized the persistent threat of terrorism, warning that doing nothing could jeopardize the security interests of all parties.
Speaking at the SCO Council of Foreign Ministers summit in Goa, Bilawal emphasized the shared accountability for the peoples’ overall security. Let’s avoid getting caught up in the idea of using terrorism for diplomatic gain, he urged.
Bilawal, the foreign minister of Pakistan, acknowledged that he had a personal connection to the problem because he had lost his mother in a terrorist attack. He vowed that he and his nation were committed to taking part in regional and international initiatives to end the threat of terrorism.
Bilawal, who served as the head of Pakistan’s delegation at the two-day SCO CFM meeting, emphasized the importance of taking a thorough and coordinated approach to dealing with the underlying issues and particular dangers posed by terrorist organizations. Instead of allowing terrorism to divide nations, he urged them to unite in the fight against it.
There are workable solutions to resolve the persistent problem of terrorism. All acts of terrorism, including those that are state-sponsored, must be condemned, and we must draw a distinction between non-state and state actors. he emphasized.
