New Delhi: India Tuesday welcomed the listing of Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesman Arindam Bagchi said, “We welcome the listing by the United Nations ISIS and Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of listing LeT terrorist Makki, who is also the brother-in-law of LeT leader Hafiz Sayeed.”
He said that Makki occupied various leadership roles in the LeT including raising funds for the organisation.
Bagchi said threats from terrorist organisations in the region remain high and listing and sanctions by the UNSC were effective tools to curb such threats and dismantle the terror infrastructure in the region.
“India remains committed to pursuing a zero tolerance approach to terrorism and will continue to press the international community to take credible, verifiable, and irreversible action against terrorism,” he said.
