    • We must not countenance double standards in this battle. Terrorists are terrorists; there are no good and bad ones. Those who propagate this distinction have an agenda and those who cover up for them are just as culpable.
    • We must summon up the political will to combat terrorism. There must be no ifs & buts in the fight. Nor should we allow terrorism to be justified & terrorists glorified. All members must fulfill the obligations enshrined in international counter-terrorism instruments.
    • Some States lack legal/operational frameworks & technical expertise to detect, investigate & prosecute terrorist financing cases. However, there are other States that are guilty of aiding & supporting terrorism & provide financial assistance, safe havens.
    • While we must enhance the capacities of the former, the international community must collectively call out the latter and hold them accountable
