India seeks global action against terror in Afghanistan

India has described as "worrisome" the continued presence in the Afghan region of terror infrastructure and has sought concerted global action to isolate and root out the syndicate of extremist groups.

India's Deputy Permanent Representative to UN, Manjeev Singh Puri, said Afghanistan continues to face "threat from terrorism, drawing upon ideological, financial and logistical support from beyond its borders", an indirect reference to Pakistan.

Speaking at a General Assembly debate on the Afghan situation, Puri said as international forces prepare to leave Afghanistan by 2014, "it is worrisome" that the terror infrastructure was intact there.
