Security Council seeks to bolster global counter-terrorism efforts

Looking ahead to a special meeting early next year of its Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC), the United Nations Security Council has asked that it build links with international organizations also involved in fighting the worldwide scourge.

In a statement read out at an open meeting yesterday by its current President, Ambassador Alfonso Valdivieso of Colombia, the Council asked the CTC to invite “all international, regional and subregional organizations to contribute to a report information on their activities in the area of counter-terrorism.”

The Council also asked that these organizations send a representative to attend the special meeting, slated for 7 March 2003.
