Sri Lanka joins global initiative to combat nuclear terrorism

Over the last two decades, Lanka has advocated strongly the need to combat terrorism

COLOMBO: Sri Lanka has joined the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism.

The Initiative provides assistance to develop national capacity to combat nuclear terrorism in a manner consistent with national legal requirements and international legal instruments such as the Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism, which was signed by Sri Lanka in 2005, the Foreign Affairs Ministry said.

“Over the last two decades, Sri Lanka has advocated strongly the need to combat terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. It has become party to 11 of the 13 UN Conventions for the suppression of terrorism.

Some of these key conventions are the International Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist Bombings and the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

Since 2000, Sri Lanka has served as the Chairman of the UN Ad-Hoc Committee on Measures to Eliminate International Terrorism. It was under Sri Lanka’s Chairmanship, that the Nuclear Terrorism Convention was successfully concluded in April 2005. Sri Lanka was also among the first signatories of the Convention.

Sri Lanka’s joining the Global Initiative, is an expression of its continuing commitment to support all global efforts to combat the scourge of terrorism. The Global Initiative provides means for States to coordinate and collaborate on activities to expand and accelerate their capacity to combat nuclear terrorism.

Morocco hosted the first meeting of the Initiative from October 30 to 31, 2006, where the Statement of Principles of the Initiative was adopted. The next meeting of the Initiative will be held in Kazhastan in June.
