India to chair key committees of UNSC
New York: India will chair three key subsidiary bodies of United Nations Security Council(UNSC), ambassador of India to UN TS Tirumurti on Friday said.
These committees are Taliban Sanctions Committee, Counterterrorism Committee and the Libyan Sanctions Committee.
Tirumurti said :”The Taliban Sanctions Committee, also called the 1988 Sanctions Committee, has always been a high priority for India. Chairing this Committee at this juncture will help keep the focus on the presence of terrorists and their sponsors, threatening the peace process in Afghanistan.
Chairing the Counterterrorism Committee in 2022, which coincides with the 75th Anniversary of India’s Independence has a special resonance for India.
The Libya Sanctions Committee, also called the 1970 Sanctions Committee, is a very important Subsidiary Body of the Council.
