Counter-Terrorism Committee of UNSC

The UNSC’s Counter-Terrorism Committee was constituted to enable UN members to prevent terrorist attacks both within their borders and across the world. It came in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks at the US. Its policy decisions are executed by the Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate. India will chair this committee along with two other committees – Taliban Sanctions Committee and Libya Sanctions Committee – during its tenure as non-permanent member at the UNSC.
