  17. Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism The CCIT is a proposed treaty which intends to criminalise all forms of international terrorism and deny terrorists, their financiers and supporters access to funds, arms, and safe havens. It was first proposed by India in 1996 at the height of Pakistan's proxy war in Kashmir. It provides a legal framework which makes it binding on all signatories to deny funds and safe havens to terrorist groups. The original draft had the following objectives: To have a universal definition of terrorism that all 193-members of the UNGA will adopt into their own criminal lavw To ban all terror groups and shut down terror camps To prosecute all terrorists under special laws To make cross-border terrorism an extraditable offence worldwide. OAyussh Sanghi's MCQ DIGEST

  18. Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism Despite India's efforts to push a global intergovernmental convention to tackle terrorism, the conclusion and ratification of the CCIT remains deadlocked, mainly due to opposition from three main blocs - the US, the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC), and the Latin American countries. All three have objections over the "definition of terrorism" (the most divisive of the issues) and seek exclusions to safeguard their strategic interests. For example, the OIC wants exclusion of national liberation movements, especially in the context of Israel-Palestinian conflict. The US wanted the draft to exclude acts committed by military forces of states during peacetime. CAyussh Sanghi's MCQ DIGEST
