NEW DELHI: Foreign Ministers of G20 countries condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations as they noted the growing threat from the misuse of new and emerging technologies for terrorist purposes.

The Outcome Document at the end of the G20 Foreign Ministers’ meeting held in Delhi also pitched for a more inclusive and reinvigorated multilateralism and reform.

The Foreign Ministers said that all acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed.

Cross-border terrorism emanating from Pakistan has been a major concern for India.

G20 Foreign Ministers called for a holisitic approach against terrorism. “Recalling the Leaders’ Declaration in Antalya (2015), Hamburg (2017) and Osaka (2019), we condemn terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, including those on the basis of xenophobia, racism and other forms of intolerance, or in the name of religion or belief, recognizing the commitment of all religions to peace.”

“We strongly condemn all terrorist acts against critical infrastructure, including critical energy facilities, and against other vulnerable targets. All acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed,” the document said.

“Effective counterterrorism measures, support for the victims of terrorism and the protection of human rights are not conflicting goals, but complementary and mutually reinforcing,” the ministers said.

The document also stressed on a holistic approach on the basis of international law can effectively counter terrorism.

The Foreign Ministers said there is growing threat from the misuse of new and emerging technologies for terrorist purposes.
