New Delhi: India highlighted terrorism as a security threat at the UN security council. India's representative to the UN Hardeep Puri said, "The international community cannot afford selective approaches in dealing with terrorist groups or in dismantling the infrastructure of terrorism. Resort to the use of terrorism as an instrument of State Policy is short-sighted. Those who have taken recourse to it have invariably themselves suffered immensely from it."
He also reportedly named terror groups Lashkar-e-Toiba and Jamaat-ud-Dawa as major security threats to South East Asian countries.
He also calls for effective international action against terror sponsors.
