The UN Security Council has "strongly condemned" the deadly terrorist attack in a Dhaka cafe that killed more than 20 people, mostly foreigners.
Russia, Indonesia, Singapore and Pakistan also expressed their shock as global condemnation over the Friday night's attack continues to come in. "The members of the Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security," the council said in a statement, reports Xinhua. The council members stressed the need to take measures to prevent and suppress the financing of terrorism, terrorist organisations and individual terrorists, in accordance with resolutions 2199 (2015) and 2253 (2015), said the statement. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also condemned the attack and hoped that "those behind this crime will be identified and brought to justice."
The council members expressed their deep sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims, to the people and government of Bangladesh, as well as peoples and governments of foreign victims, and they wished speedy and full recovery to those who were injured, said the statement.
"The members of the Security Council underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice," the statement added. "They stressed that those responsible for these killings should be held accountable, and urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with all relevant authorities in this regard.
"The members of the Security Council reiterated that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations is criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of its motivation and wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed, and should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilization, or ethnic group," it said.
They reaffirmed the need for all States to combat by all means, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and other obligations under international law, including international human rights law, international refugee law and international humanitarian law, threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts, the statement added. The Russian foreign ministry in a statement said: "We are indignant at this yet another inhumane terrorist attack, which has no justification. We express our sincere condolences to the relatives of those killed and wish the injured quickest recovery.
"What happened in Dhaka once again proves that it is necessary to immediately combine efforts of all the global community to fight international terrorism," read the statement.
"Indonesia stands in solidarity with Bangladesh in its fight against terrorism and reiterated its statement the importance of closer international cooperation for combating terrorism that poses a real threat to the world," a statement released by the foreign affairs ministry said on Saturday.
Singapore also condemned the attack in the strongest possible terms. "There can be no justifications for such heinous actions. We express our deepest condolences to the bereaved families and wish the injured a speedy recovery," said the MFA in a press release.
The Pakistan foreign ministry said: "The government and the people of Pakistan extend their heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and the brotherly people and government of Bangladesh over the loss of innocent lives and wish the injured early recovery". "Pakistan stands in solidarity with the brotherly people of Bangladesh and is confident that the Government of Bangladesh will effectively counter this cowardly attack."
