The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has urged the international community to co-operate actively with India in bringing the perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of terrorism to justice. In a statement, the 15-nation body, which also includes China, strongly condemned the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama that claimed the lives of over 40 CRPF personnel last week. The UNSC members expressed their deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims, as well as to the Indian people and the government, and wished a speedy and full recovery to those injured.

The UNSC termed the attack as heinous and cowardly. The condemnation also named the Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed which claimed responsibility for the attack. The UNSC reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations is one of the most serious threats to international peace and security. The member countries underlined the need to hold accountable those behind these reprehensible acts and bring them to justice.

Earlier, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres had strongly condemned the attack and called for those behind it to be brought to justice. The international community had also extended its condolences and support to India in the fight against terrorism.

In a major boost to India's efforts to get Jaish-e-Mohammed Chief Masood Azhar on the list of global terrorists, France is expected to soon move a proposal at the UN to ban him. The proposal, when moved, will be fourth such bid at the UN in last 10 years.

Meanwhile MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar in a tweet said, Pakistan comes under international pressure to act against terrorists and terror groups operating from areas under its control and to take action against those responsible for Pulwama attack. He said, UNSC has strongly condemned cowardly suicide bombing in Pulwama by JeM. He said, the UNSC underlined the need to hold perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism accountable and bring them to justice.
