Yemen and unanimously accepted definition ofterrorism. And this has

Yemen has been a member of United Nations since 1947.Though there has been a large amountof discussion about Yemen in UNSC; Yemen has hardly got any chance to vote on anyresolution. Yemen, regardless of its ongoing crisis, is devoted and grateful to United NationsSecurity Council and United Nations for their support in Yemen’s hard times.The United Nations is yet to come up with a proper and unanimously accepted definition ofterrorism. And this has been one of the major reasons why meaningful counter measures are yetto be implemented. Even so Yemen is at the front lines in the fight against terrorism and hasbeen a victim of this phenomenon for many years. Though various terror attacks were observedin Yemen from 1998 to 2017 the rate is declining. Due to the various counter measures taken bythe current government the Terrorism Index in Yemen decreased from 8.08 in 2015 to 7.88 in2016. After the election of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi in February 2012, the Governmentshifted from focusing merely on the military and security options in the fight against terrorismand violent extremism in favor of a two-pronged approach. The measures taken by ourgovernment included deradicalization and reintegration programs alongside military operations.Yemen is in a quest for sustainable peace but the main obstacle is the Houthi rebel coalition withwhom ties of terrorist groups are evident. In fact, Yemen is currently in its third year of civil waragainst the Houthi rebel coalition. The war would have ended up by now if a few foreign nationsdidn’t interfere in the sovereignty of Yemen. The war has brought massive aftermath all over thenation including malnutrition and cholera. Children are the main victim of these and facepremature death. Though the terrorist activity has been reduced after the incarnation of the reignof Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi’s government, death of children is yet to come down. It’s a matter ofshame that the Yemeni Armed Forces were added to the list of shame by UNICEF due to therecruitment of child soldiers in the armed forces in the period of our previous government, butour current president Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi banned the recruitment of children into anymilitary and security forces in Yemen. The ban was announced following a meeting with theUnited Nations Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, Ms.Leila Zerrougui.United Nations and the government of Yemen is working together to solve this ongoing crisis.But all these can be achieved when terrorism comes to an end and the country gains stability allover its region.Yemen desires that the following solutions should be established from the United NationsSecurity Council:? A proper unanimous definition of terrorism should be agreed upon.? There should be more emphasis given by the Financial Action Task Force to control thetrade and transaction of money by the terrorist groups.? The rules and regulations asserted in the Paris Principles on the context of children andthe Convention on the Rights of the Rights of the Child should be followed and respectedby every country.? The children of the terrorist organizations should always be viewed as a victim of forcedideology and should never be treated as perpetrators.? There should be proper rules and regulations implemented on the private militarycontractors on the topic of child recruitment.? Deradicalization and reintegration programs should be launched on the affected regions.
