UN Member States frequently negotiate and adopt resolutions on preventing and countering terrorism. These resolutions represent international commitments on what measures the international community should take.

Resolutions by the Security Council are legally binding on all Member States. The Security Council has adopted a series of resolutions and reports relating to terrorism.

Also the General Assembly has adopted a range of resolutions and reports on terrorism.

We support UN’s intergovernmental bodies with their development of international counter-terrorism policy; these bodies include the General Assembly, Economic and Social Council, the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice and the United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice.
