The foreign secretary further called on UNSC member states to tackle implications of terrorist exploitation of cyber domain more strategically.

“There’s a sophisticated use of cyberspace by terrorists to broaden their propaganda and incite hatred. As a victim of terrorism, India has always emphasized the need for Member States to tackle implications of terrorist exploitation of cyber domain more strategically,” he said.
