Dhaka stresses the need to conclude a comprehensive convention on international terrorism outlining the root causes

Bangladesh condemns and rejects terrorism in all forms and manifestations, Bangladesh’s permanent representative at the UN said on Wednesday.

“Bangladesh maintains a strict policy of zero tolerance towards terrorism and violent extremism,” Ambassador Rabab Fatima said in her statement at UN plenary meeting on measures to eliminate international terrorism, according to the permanent mission in New York on Thursday night.

The envoy stressed the need to conclude a comprehensive convention on international terrorism outlining the root causes of terrorism and specific measures to eliminate those trends and reaffirmed the country’s abiding commitment to remain as a reliable partner of the international community to counter terrorism in all forms and manifestations.

She shared the various initiatives of the government in counter terrorism and violent extremism, and said that Bangladesh is a party to all the international counter-terrorism instruments.

At the national level, Bangladesh has put in place comprehensive laws, namely, the "Anti-Terrorism Act-2012" and the "Money Laundering Prevention Act 2009," said the ambassador.

Bangladesh has been investing heavily in national capacity building including awareness-raising, community engagement and resilience, in a "whole-of-society" approach to combat terrorism, she added.

Welcoming the adoption of the UN Global Counter Terrorism Strategy in 2006 to set norms in the global fight against terrorism, Ambassador Fatima urged the international community to closely monitor evolving trends of international terrorism and find innovative solutions to implement the various obligations under the strategy.

The meeting took place in a very limited capacity at the UN headquarters due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
