United against the threat of terrorism

Written Declaration No 378

This written declaration commits only the members who have signed it

      Terrorism poses one of the greatest threats to international peace and security as well as to democratic institutions.

The scourge of terrorism cuts across political, geographic and religious boundaries. It cannot be identified with any religion, culture or ethnic origin.

Terrorism violates the full enjoyment of one of the most fundamental human rights, the right to life.

Terrorism cannot have any justification under any pretext.

We are mindful that terrorism threatens European countries, resulting in violent attacks perpetrated in Spain, the Russian Federation and the UK.

We also condemn and reject the violent activities of the PKK/KONGRA-GEL terrorist organisation which has recently escalated its criminal activities which resulted in loss of life and material damage in Turkey.

We ask the PKK/KONGRA-GEL to stop its terrorist activities immediately and unconditionally and lay down arms. All political demands and aspirations must be channelled through democratic processes.
