India To Chair 3 Key Subsidiary Bodies Of UN Security Council- Taliban Sanctions

Reports have been coming from United Security Council where United Nations Security Council has said that India will be chairing 3 key subsidiary bodies of UN Security Council- Taliban Sanctions Committee, Counter-Terrorism Committee (for 2022) and Libya Sanctions committee.

According to the new decision India will be chairing Counter-Terrorism Committee of UNSC in 2022. Chairing of this committee has a special resonance for India.

It has not only been at the forefront of fighting terrorism especially cross border terrorism but has also been one of its biggest victims.

TS Tirumurti has further stated that Taliban Sanctions Committee has always been a high priority for India keeping in mind our strong interest and commitment to peace, security, development and progress of Afghanistan.

We will be assuming the chair of the Libya Sanctions Committee at a critical juncture when there is an international focus on Libya and on the peace process.
