G20 pledges to step up fight against terrorism

G20 pledges to step up fight against terrorism”

After a powerful statement against terrorism by the Prime Minister of India at the G-20 convention in Hamburg, the worldwide forum stood firmly with the Indian Prime Minister, united against terrorism.

"Appropriate filtering, detecting and removing of content that incites terrorist acts is crucial in this respect", they said in a statement issued during the summit.

"There should be no ´safe spaces´ for terrorist financing anywhere in the world".

In agreement to the Prime Minister's stand, the world leaders at the G-20 Summit called for countering radicalisation leading to terrorism, misuse of social media and internet and counter-terrorism measure to limit their findings.

The Hamburg declaration emphasised the importance of transparency for predictable and mutually beneficial trade relations, and the leaders said they would strive to ensure a level playing field. "I thank German Chancellor Angela Merkel for choosing this topic".

At a leaders' retreat ahead of the summit here, as a lead speaker, Modi presented a 10-point agenda on countering terrorism and, in a veiled reference to Pakistan, said countries supporting terrorism should be banned from joining the G20.

Even Modi had in his proposed agenda stressed on eliminating the sources of terror financing.

On financing terrorism, the statement said the leaders' resolve to make the worldwide financial system entirely hostile to terrorist financing and commit to deepening worldwide cooperation and exchange of information, including working with the private sector, which has a critical role in global efforts to counter terrorism financing.

In a joint statement issued after the meeting, the G20 leaders called for "strengthening measures against the financing of global terrorist organisations, in particular ISIL/ISIS/Daesh, Al-Qaeda and their affiliates".

The leaders also called for the implementation of existing global commitments on countering terrorism, including the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Strategy, and compliance with relevant resolutions and targetted sanctions by the UN Security Council relating to terrorism.
