India demand for end to ‘Special Terrorist Zones’ in Pakistan

India today sought action to end the “Special Terrorist Zones” in Pakistan where militant outfits, the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) are protected and further mentioned that Afghanistan’s stability and security was tied to that of the entire region.

“It is imperative to address the support that terrorist organisations like the Taliban, Haqqani Network, Islamic State (IS), Al Oaeda and its designated affiliates such as the LeT and JeM operating outside the fabric of international law, draw from outside Afghanistan,” India’s Deputy Permanent Representative Tanmaya Lal told the General Assembly on Monday during a debate on the situation in that country.

“The Special Terrorist Zones, safe havens and sanctuaries beyond Afghanistan’s border must end,” he added, without naming Pakistan while the context made clear the country he was referring to.
