UN Security Council Condemns Boko Haram Violence
KABUL: (Middle East Press) The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has condemned the terrorist activities of Takfiri Boko Haram militants in Nigeria as a threat to the stability of Central African regions as well as the West.
A statement released on Tuesday in New York, the UNSC called for an immediate and stepped-up regional military association to battle the Takfiri group in Nigeria and its neighboring countries.
Reiterating their resolve to combat all forms of terrorism, the fifteen UNSC “members underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of acts of terrorism to justice,” said the statement.
The UNSC also welcomed the assistance extended by the Chadian army in the fight against Boko Haram in neighboring Cameroon.
The progress comes as Nigeria is only days away from nationwide elections while the threat from the Takfiri militants has made the voting process nearly unreasonable in the country’s northeastern regions.
