UNSC asks member nations to cooperate with India


United Nations: Condemning the terror attacks in Mumbai, the UN Security Council has asked member nations of the world body to offer active cooperation to India in bringing the perpetrators to book.

The 15-member powerful Council underlined the need to bring the organizers, financiers and perpetrators of the “reprehensible act" to justice and asked all member States of the UN to cooperate actively with Indian authorities, a statement said.

Reaffirming that terrorism is a threat to international peace and security, the members said regardless of their motivation, all acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable.

They also expressed their condolences to the families of the victims, to the people and the government.

At least 127 people, including 14 police personnel have been killed and 327 persons injured in the deadly strike on India’s financial capital.

The dead also include at least nine foreigners.
