United Nations, Oct 9: India's envoy to the United Nations Hardeep Singh puri has asked the world leaders to negotiate an international treaty to tackle terrorism.

Puri said, "Our Embassy in Kabul was again subjected to yet another terrorist attack, which has resulted in injury of Indian security personnel as well as death of large number of Afghan civilians."

He also said, "While it is important for the international community to condemn terrorism and these attacks in an unequivocal manner, it is also critical that we strengthen the legal framework in the fight against terrorism."

Taliban, on its website, had written that one of their "martyrs" carried out suicide car bomb attack in a heavily fortified diplomatic area and added that the Indian embassy "was the main target".

"Countless innocent lives have been lost to heinous terrorist attacks. It is imperative that our resolve against perpetrators of such attacks now be manifested in a strong and resolute manner," Puri said.

"It is time for the global community to conclude the negotiations and make a firm commitment by adopting the Convention," he added.
