'Terrorism cannot be national strategy'

'Terrorism cannot be national strategy'

 Terrorism should not be a national strategy of any country, India said on Wednesday, even as it subtly underlined the danger of terrorists getting access to the nuclear arsenal of Pakistan.

“The dangers of discriminating among terrorists – good or bad or even yours and mine – are increasingly recognised. Terrorism is an international threat that should not serve national strategy. Nuclear terrorism even more so,” Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar said, inaugurating the meeting of the Implementation and Assessment Group of the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism (GICNT).

The GICNT, which came into existence in 2006, emerged over the past 10 years as a voluntary international partnership of 86 nations and five international organisations, which are committed to strengthening global capacity to prevent, detect and respond to nuclear terrorism.
