China causing ambiguity  

China once again signaled that it will remain hostile to so far anything accusing Pakistan come up and that it will insulate Pakistan- his very close ally now days. More than that what seems to even a layman that China has not come to term that India would emerge as power by all means and difficult to digest.

While the Indian team led by Prime Minister, Modi did aggressive canvassing on enlightening the ground situation over terrorism being spread by its neighbor, BRICS nation left a bit short of isolating Pakistan The five-nation powerful grouping of BRICS on Sunday asked all countries to prevent “terrorist actions” from their territories and called for expeditious adoption of an India-backed global convention by the UN to fight the menace effectively.

However, a joint declaration adopted at the annual summit of grouping of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa calling upon all nations to adopt a comprehensive approach in combating terrorism, violent extremism, radicalisation, recruitment, movement of terrorists, including foreign terrorists and blocking sources of financing terrorism is a matter of satisfaction.

On concluding day the BRICS declaration says, “We call upon all nations to work together to expedite the adoption of the Comprehensive Convention on Terrorism (CCIT) in the UN General Assembly without any further delay,” the Goa declaration issued at the end of the Summit said.

Interestingly, China whose track record of worst human rights records is too well known, tried to come with clean hands when it joined the chorus and asked the countries to adopt a “holistic” approach in successfully combating terrorism.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for decisive action to deal with terrorism and described Pakistan as a mothership of global terrorism.

The BRICS said sources of terror funding like organised by means of money-laundering, drug trafficking, criminal activities, dismantling terrorist bases, and countering misuse of the internet including through social media by terror entities should be focus areas.

Successfully combating terrorism requires a holistic approach. All counter-terrorism measures should uphold international law and respect human rights, ” the declaration said.

Stressing UN's central role in coordinating multilateral approaches against terrorism, the BRICS urged all nations to undertake effective implementation of relevant UN Security Council Resolutions and reaffirmed its commitment on increasing the effectiveness of the UN counter terrorism framework.

In the declaration, the BRICS said it reaffirmed commitment to the FATF (Financial Action Task Force) international standards on combating money laundering and the Financing of Terrorism and Proliferation.

The FATF is an intergovernmental organisation founded in 1989 on the initiative of the G7 to develop policies to combat money laundering. In 2001 the purpose expanded to act on terrorism financing.

It also called for swift, effective and universal implementation of FATF on combating terrorist financing, including effective implementation of its operational plan.
