UN Security Council, July 21: The constant increasing terror in Africa is a crucial issue at the moment. But it has been overlooked by International communities constantly. Taking benefit from this indifference, the Islamist Terror groups like Boko Haram, Al Shabab are increasing their torture in the region. India has expressed its concern over "less than satisfactory" response to terrorist threats. The price of this “indifference” may cost immeasurably.
"The ever expanding terror networks have endangered the peace and security of African region in unprecedented ways. From Boko Haram to Al Shabaab, these terrorist networks have proved time and again ever more connected to terrorist networks from all around the world," Indias Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin said.
In Africa, Akbaruddin addressed a Security Council debate on peace and security on Thursday. Not only in Africa, have these terror activities posed threat to broader international security. In the African Union, the UN has a willing partner. Now the question has been asked by him is that council is ready or not to put immediate action.
India was the first country to deploy 125 all women police contingent in Liberia in a UN peacekeeping mission. The presence of a female police unit has inspired several women to come forward to join the police force and participate in maintaining law and order. Making of such role models is really needed.
"The presence of a female police unit has inspired several women to come forward to join the police force and participate in maintaining law and order. We need to make such role models as essential ingredients of every UN peace keeping operation with police deployments," Akbaruddin said.
