Sri Lanka's Ambassador to the UN in Geneva Ravinatha Aryasinha has asked that greater attention be paid in the Global Counter Terrorism Strategy, to the challenge posed by the abuse of Information Communication Technology and the use or display of terrorist group emblems, insignia and symbols.

 

He emphasized that they communicate the message, purpose, history, and goals of terrorist organizations and as such contribute to the creation of an organizational culture of incitement and hatred that is dangerously encouraged to be emulated.

 

Ambassador Aryasinha made these observations when he addressed the International Counter-Terrorism Focal Points Conference on 'Addressing Conditions Conducive to the Spread of Terrorism and Promoting Regional Cooperation', held in Geneva on the 13th and 14th.

 

He drew attention to Sri Lanka's experience in successfully defeating the LTTE, and the manner in which the Government of Sri Lanka had contributed to the building of the evolving international legal regime relating to countering terrorism and in meeting its international obligations in this regard.
