New Delhi, November 14: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is to inaugurate the 3rd Ministerial ‘No Money for Terror’ Conference scheduled to be held in the national capital this weekend, government sources said.
The sources, privy to the development, told news agency that the Prime Minister will inaugurate the two-day event being held on November 18 and 19 to further India’s efforts to build understanding and cooperation amongst nations in the fight against terror financing.
The hosting of this conference shows the importance being given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Central government to the issue of international terrorism as well as its zero-tolerance policy against this menace and having discussions on this issue in the international community.
Globally, countries have been affected by terrorism and militancy for several years. The pattern of violence differs in most theatres but is largely engendered by a tumultuous geo-political environment, coupled with prolonged armed sectarian conflicts. Such conflicts often lead to poor governance, political instability, economic deprivation, and large ungoverned spaces. The involvement of a complaint State often exacerbates terrorism, especially it’s financing.
Discussions at the 3rd ‘No Money For Terror’ Conference will be focussed on global trends in terrorism and terrorist financing, the use of formal and informal channels of funds for terrorism, emerging technologies and terrorist financing, and requisite international co-operation to address related challenges.
