APEC Foreign Ministers Reach Consensus on Anti-Terrorism
SHANGHAI, Foreign ministers attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Ministerial Meeting here Thursday reached consensus on anti-terrorism during their working breakfast hosted by Chinese Foreign Minister Tang Jiaxuan.
Following are the key points of their consensus:
-- All manners of terrorist activities pose threat to the international peace and security and should be sternly condemned and fought against. The International community should take an identical stance on the issue;
-- All anti-terrorist international covenants and resolutions adopted by the United Nations Security Council should be earnestly
implemented, in particular, any acts of financing terrorism should
be prevented and prohibited and all terrorists should be dealt with according to law;
-- It is necessary to strengthen international cooperation and give full play to the role of the United Nations and its Security Council in combating terrorism;
-- Anti-terrorism is a just-vs-evil struggle and a show of strength of civilization against barbarianism rather than a conflict among different ethnic groups, religions or cultures.
APEC foreign ministers believe that dialogue, accommodation and
cooperation among different civilizations should be promoted.
