INDIA: Union Home Minister Amit Shah raised the subject of attacks on minorities and temples in Bangladesh on the second day of the bilateral session.
Amit Shah raised his concern with his counterpart from the neighbouring country, Asaduzzaman Khan. On the margins of the “No Money for Terror” conference in Delhi, the two important leaders discussed security-related topics.
The Union Home Minister’s official team took to their Twitter handle and wrote, “Union Home Minister @AmitShah met H.E. Asaduzzaman Khan, the Home Minister of Bangladesh, on the sidelines of the ‘No Money for Terror’ conference. Both sides had productive exchanges on border management and common security-related issues.”
The entire program is arranged by the ministry of home affairs to bring all countries together and to share their thoughts to cut down the ongoing terrorism. More than 450 foreign delegates from over 75 countries and international organizations marked their presence at the grand affair.
As per officials, Pakistan and Afghanistan didn’t participate in the programme, whereas China was invited, but they were absent. Amit Shah also met Ethiopia’s Minister of Peace, Binalf Andualem, with whom he spoke about potential solutions to unify regional issues of shared interest.
Union Home Minister Shah also mentioned the importance of banning the raising of cryptocurrency, which worked as an illegal measure of monetary transfer to terror organisations.
He further added on, saying, “We perceive that financing terrorism is more destructive than terrorism itself because it fosters the “means and tactics” of terrorism. Financing terrorism harms countries’ economies.”
Amit Shah stressed his words while addressing the ongoing conference. He spoke about the criticality of fighting against terrorism. He went on to say, “We have observed that some nations harbour and defend terrorists. Protecting a terrorist is equivalent to promoting terrorism. It will be our commitment as a group to ensure that such forces never succeed in their goals.”
