Borders Need To Be Secured Against Illicit Trade Says India


India has said its prime concern is to secure its borders against illicit trade, noting that the country’s national security has been adversely impacted by terrorism, transnational organised crime and drug trafficking.

Speaking at a UN conference on small arms in New York yesterday, Ambassador Amandeep Singh Gill, Permanent Representative of India to the Conference on Disarmament, said that border management is a significant challenge for India as it shares a long border with several neighbours.

The main objective of India’s border management policy is to secure the country’s borders against illicit trade, including through the setting up of a Department of Border Management as well as establishing bilateral and multilateral avenues of cooperation in this sphere, Gill said.

He was speaking at the 3rd UN Conference to Review Progress made in the Implementation of the Programme of Action (PoA) to Prevent, Combat And Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) in all Its Aspects. Read More
