Resent terrorist attacks on areas of Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iraq, which killed and injured many innocent people, once again highlighted the issue of protecting those affected by brutal acts and the need to address the roots of terrorism. The increase in such attacks has led to continuation of insecurity and concern for the people of these countries since such terrorist acts are aimed at undermining the democratic system and the independence of these countries.
We believe terrorism has grown and expanded in the context of multiple criteria and inconsistent stances and has brought such human life to constant violence. Today, terrorism, with its various forms and justifications, plays a major threat to the security and human life in the world. And so there should be an internationally-mandated United Nations-led oversight and regional cooperation to confront this ominous phenomenon.
The Association for the Defense of Victims of Terrorism, while condemning this kind of human-rights vilations and expressing sympathy with the families of the victims of terrorism, considers regional collaborators the only way out of the current and most complicated conditions of terrorism.
