UN counter-terrorism meeting: US diplomat Chris Lu visiting India

| @indiablooms | 28 Oct 2022, 02:59 pm

New Delhi: A senior US diplomat in the UN Chris Lu is travelling to India to participate in a UN counter-terrorism meeting and address important issues between New Delhi and Washington.

He tweeted: " Looking forward to representing @USUN at this important #UN counter-terrorism convening, as well as strengthening the ties between the U.S. and India."

The United Nations Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee holds a special meeting in Mumbai and New Delhi beginning on Friday, focused on the growing threat posed by new and emerging technologies.

"Ambassador Chris Lu, U.S. Representative for UN Management and Reform, will travel to Mumbai and New Delhi, India from October 27-29 to address issues of counterterrorism, as well as the important relationship between the two countries," the US mission in United Nations said in a media note.

"While in New Delhi, Ambassador Lu will serve as Head of Delegation in a special meeting of the UN Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee focused on threats posed by emerging technologies," it said.

"In Mumbai, Ambassador Lu will participate in a wreath-laying ceremony in honor of the victims of the 26/11 terrorist attack. The Ambassador will also meet with graduate students from the Indian Institute of Democratic Leadership to hear their aspirations and discuss the essential role public service plays in democracy," he said.

The two-day meeting in India marks the first time since 2015, that the Committee has convened outside UN Headquarters in New York.

The discussion will focus on three areas: Internet and social media; financing for global terror networks; and the proliferation of unmanned aerial systems, such as drones.
