India warned the UN, the mercenaries involved in Syria are also a threat to other countries. India has warned the world community at the United Nations Security Council that foreign and mercenary fighters involved in the Syrian conflict have begun to move elsewhere.
This has increased the danger in other countries as well. India’s permanent representative at the United Nations, TS Gurumurthy, told the Security Council that India is ready to play its positive role on this platform.
He reminded the meeting on the Syrian issue that the first statement on the Syrian conflict issue was issued in August 2011 under the chairmanship of India.
Then in December 2012, three proposals on Syria were accepted. There has been no significant progress in terms of implementation and terrorism in any of these three.
Thirumurthy said that after eight years we are making a new beginning in the Security Council, still, we are seeing that the Syrian problem does not seem to be going away.
The political process has not even begun. The permanent representative of India expressed concern that Syria’s terrorism is spreading to other places, even to Africa, as the problem is not resolved. Syrian mercenaries are building their hideouts elsewhere.
