Statement made on behalf of the Security Council, at the 5600th meeting, 20 Dec. 2006, in connection with the Council's consideration of the item entitled "Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts"
Reaffirms that terrorism constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable; reiterates its call on States to become parties to all relevant international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism, and to make full use of the sources of assistance and guidance; reminds States that they must ensure that any measures taken to combat terrorism comply with all their obligations under international law, in particular international human rights, refugee and humanitarian law; calls upon the relevant UN departments, programmes and specialized agencies to consider how to pursue counter-terrorism objectives; encourages the Counter-Terrorism Committee to report to the Council on any outstanding issues; stresses that the mandate of the Counter-Terrorism Committee's Executive Directorate flows from that of the Counter-Terrorism Committee; endorses the Counter-Terrorism Committee's recommendation with regard to CTED's reporting lines so that CTED would henceforth present its draft work programmes and its semi-annual reports directly to the Committee.
