Bamako (Mali), Sept 30: Observing that global issues like intertiol terrorism, climate change and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction were gaining prominence, Indian Vice President Hamid Ansari on Friday advocated reforms in global political, economic and security institutions. Addressing the Mali tiol Assembly here, Ansari said an early adoption of the Comprehensive Convention on Intertiol Terrorism (CCIT) was essential for strengthening intertiol normative regime on terrorism. “The salience of global cross-cutting issues is rising and these cannot be resolved by a handful of powerful countries or even through regiol efforts. These issues include climate change, global public health challenges, drug-trafficking, trafficking of humans, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and intertiol terrorism. There are newer domains of cyber security and space security as well,” said Ansari. “Active participation of large and populous countries like India and those in Africa, becomes indispensable in resolving such global issues. That is why India advocates reforms in global political, economic and security institutions. (IANS)
