| The United Nations has long been active in the fight against international terrorism. Reflecting the determination of the international community to eliminate this threat, the Organization and its agencies have developed a wide range of international legal agreements that enable the international community to take action to suppress terrorism and bring those responsible to justice. Currently there are 27 global or regional instruments pertaining to the subject of international terrorism, dating back to 1963 (Document A/60/228). |
At its 60th session, the General Assembly in resolution 60/43 "condemned all acts, methods and practices of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations as criminal and unjustifiable". In addition, the Assembly decided that the Ad Hoc Committee established by resolution 51/210 of 17 December 1996, continue to elaborate the draft comprehensive convention on international terrorism on an expedited basis.
