India's ambassador to the UN TS Tirumurti said India has consistently stressed within and outside the Security Council to fight terrorism and prevent attempts to "weaken" the focus of the crisis. Let us tell you that during the Presidency of the Security Council next month, India has to organize several events related to the report of the Secretary-General on IS.
We are ready to preside over the Security Council in August, Tirumurti said in the UN
India will take over the presidency of the 15-member UN Security Council on August 1 and it is fully prepared for this. This is India's first presidency in the 2021-22 term as a non-permanent member of the Security Council.
India will again chair the Security Council in December next year. Tirumurti said India has continuously tried to strengthen efforts to fight terrorism. During his presidency, India will focus on issues such as maritime security, peacekeeping, and counter-terrorism and will preside over high-level programs on these issues.
In February this year, Tirumurti had told the Security Council conference, "The world knows that these terrorist groups are nurtured in Pakistani safe havens." These violent attacks have always disrupted the peace process.
