[TamilNet, Thursday, 30 September 1999, 15:57 GMT]
The 14th symposium on International Terrorism, which concluded today in Colombo decided to support efforts to adopt the International Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist Financing at the 54th session of the United Nations General Assembly, said a press release by the Sri Lankan government's Information Department.

The Secretary General of the INTERPOL Mr.R.E.Kendol delivered the inaugural speech at the event which was attended by 70 delegates from 37 countries and 5 international organizations, the statement said.

"This symposium, disturbed by the escalation of terrorism acts, which are being carried out world wide stressed the need to strengthen further international co-operation between states and between international organisations and agencies, regional organisations and the United Nations as well as through INTERPOL," the statement said.

"The symposium also strongly condemned all acts, methods and practices of terrorism as criminal and unjustifiable and reiterated that criminal acts intended or calculated to provoke a state of terror in the general public, a group of persons or particular persons or political purposes are in any circumstances unjustifiable," it said further.

"The symposium recalling its earlier decisions, adopted a recommendation that all member-states of the INTERPOL should implement provisions of general assembly known as Cairo Declaration against terrorism to increase the effectiveness of joint international action to guarantee international peace and security," the Information Department said.

The countries represented at the symposium were Portugal, Canada, Jordan, Norway, Germany, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Netherlands, Argentina, Ireland, United Kingdom, Sweden, Algeria, France, Romania, Italy, Maldives, Nepal, Hongkong, Kenya, South Korea, Japan, China, U.S.A., Indonesia, Austria, Croatia, Nigeria, Spain, India, Pakistan, Uganda, Phillipine, Iran, Russia and Sri Lanka.
