“Bangladesh condemns and rejects terrorism in its all forms and manifestations” -Ambassador Rabab Fatima at the UN.

 New York, 07 October 2020:

“Bangladesh maintains a strict policy of zero tolerance towards terrorism and violent extremism” said Permanent Representative of Bangladesh to the United Nations Ambassador Rabab Fatima in her statement at UN Plenary Meeting on Measures to eliminate international terrorism on 07 October 2020. In this regard, she shared the various initiatives of the Government of Bangladesh in counter terrorism and violent extremism. Permanent Representative mentioned that Bangladesh is a party to all international counter-terrorism instruments. At the national level, it has put in place comprehensive laws, namely, the ‘Anti-Terrorism Act-2012’ and the ‘Money Laundering Prevention Act 2009’. 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.

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 trend of international terrorism and find innovative solutions to implement the various obligations under UN Global Counter Terrorism Strategy.

Stressing on the need to conclude a Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism outlining the root causes of terrorism and specific measures to eliminate those trends, Permanent Representative reaffirmed the abiding commitment of Bangladesh to remain as a reliable partner of international community to counter terrorism in its all forms and manifestations.

This meeting took place in a much-limited capacity at the UNHQs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
