Global terrorist treat now ‘more pervasive’, Pakistan tells UNSC

Pakistan ratifies Paris Climate Change accord at UN ceremony

UNITED NATIONS, April 15 (APP): Warning that the global terrorist threat has become “more pervasive”, Pakistan on Thursday called on the international community to join hands to combat the menace “urgently and effectively.”

Speaking in a UN Security Council debate on countering terrorism, Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi said that Pakistan had made substantial gains in its anti-terrorism drive, and rejected aspersions being cast by some about its contribution.

“Pakistan has been at the forefront of the global fight against
terrorism,” the Pakistani envoy told the 15-member Council.”We have lost tens of thousands of lives in this fight, but this has not shaken our resolve to continue this campaign until the last terrorist is eliminated from our soil.”
