NEW YORK: The Security Council on Thursday condemned the Pulwama attack in the “strongest terms” and named Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in the resolution.

“The members of the Security Council condemned in the strongest terms the heinous and cowardly suicide bombing in Jammu and Kashmir, which resulted in over 40 Indian paramilitary forces dead and dozens wounded on February 14, 2019, for which Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) has claimed responsibility,” the UN body said in a statement.

The UNSC statement was approved unanimously by its permanent and non- permanent members, including China. France is expected to move a proposal, along with the United States and the United Kingdom, to declare Azhar a terrorist subject. It will be fourth such bid at the UN in the past ten years.

“The members of the Security Council underlined the need to hold perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism accountable and bring them to justice, and urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with the Government of India and all other relevant authorities in this regard,” the UNSC said in its press statement.

"They reaffirm the need for all states to combat by all means, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and other obligations under international law, including international human rights law, international refugee law and international humanitarian law, threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts,” it said.
