National

New Delhi: In a veiled jibe at Pakistan, external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj, on Friday, said it was important for countries to stop funding terror organizations.

Swaraj, in her address as the guest-of-honour at the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’s plenary session, thanked “India’s friends for hearing its voice”.

“If we want to save humanity, then we need to tell nations supporting terror that they need to stop funding terror organizations. This war cannot be won just militarily or diplomatically,” she said in a strongly worded statement at the Abu Dhabi meeting, adding that the world was witnessing the terrible face of terror.

The OIC is an international organization which purports to be the collective voice of the Muslim world and work towards safeguarding the interests of the community. With permanent representatives to the United Nations and the European Union, it has 57 member states.
