The Indian envoy said that as the Iraq government continue their fight against ISIL, it is also critical to fighting the impunity of terror globally. “Last week, the victims of 26/11 terror attack were remembered in India and several other countries," she added.
India marked the 14th anniversary of the 26/11 attacks last week in which over 160 people lost their lives.
Recalling the 26/11 attack, Kamboj said, “be it Mumbai or Mosul, India believes that credibility of our collective fight against terrorism can be strengthened only when we can ensure accountability for grave and inhuman acts of terror and take strong measures against those who encourage support and finance terrorism."
