Countries harbouring terrorists should pay the price: Swaraj


New Delhi: Countries sponsoring and harbouring terrorists should be made to pay the price, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said today, calling for a united global fight against terrorism.

In an address to BRICS Youth Summit, Swaraj said the fight should be carried out without any distinction being made between "good" and "bad" terrorists.

Swaraj said BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa) was shaping the global discourse significantly to deal with a range of challenges like climate change, poverty alleviation and corruption and that it must also work to eliminate terrorism.

"We also need to work and fight together to eliminate international terrorism in BRICS, UN Security Council and its various Committees. This should be done without any differentiation of a ’good’ or ’bad’ terrorist.

"A terrorist is a terrorist and is someone who is acting against humanity as a whole. Those countries which sponsor and harbour terrorists should be made to pay the price," Swaraj said.

India will host the eighth annual Summit of BRICS in Goa in October in its capacity as chair of the influential bloc comprising the five countries account for 42 per cent of the world’s population and combined GDP of over USD 16 trillion.
