A two-day meeting of the Counter-Terrorism Committee of the United Nations Security Council was organized in India. On the first day, the conference was held on Friday i.e. yesterday at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai and on Saturday i.e. today in New Delhi, in which discussions were held on the threat and prevention of terrorism around the world.

Along with this, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that terrorist groups are abusing many new technologies including encrypted messaging services, which threatens the international community. Therefore, there is a need to work on immediate measures to deal with it.
External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said the toolkits of the internet and social media platforms have become powerful tools for terrorists, through which they try to destabilize society, and spread bigotry, which needs to be tackled immediately. Along with this, the External Affairs Minister said that terrorist groups and criminal organizations are committing crimes using unmanned aerial systems like drones, which he described as a big challenge for security agencies around the world.
