India calls for UN sanctions against terrorists involved in sexual violence

@AkbaruddinIndia
India has called upon the UN Security Council  to proactively list terrorists and terror groups involved in sexual violence in armed conflicts.  First Secretary in the Permanent Mission of India to the UN, Paulomi Tripathi,  said that women's role and perspectives in peace processes remain largely neglected. She was speaking during a UN Security Council debate on 'Women, Peace and Security'.

Ms.Tripathi voiced her concern that sexual violence, abductions and human trafficking continue to be used as weapons of war in armed conflict by non-state actors and terrorist organisations. She asserted that the Council must make all efforts to realise the full potential of integrating women, peace and security . Emphasising the need for global cooperation in this front, she said no country is in a position to effectively counter these challenges alone.

Earlier, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres told the Council's annual high-level debate that the participation of women in formal peace processes remains extremely limited.
