New Delhi [India], July 14 (ANI): The Non-Aligned Movement's approach must be anchored in reformed multilateralism and it must lead efforts to strengthen international legal frameworks to combat terrorism and its enablers, without exceptions or double standards, said Minister of State (MoS) for External Affairs V Muraleedharan on Wednesday.

"Addressed the #NAM Mid-Term Ministerial Meeting, today. To be a relevant and effective stakeholder in navigating global challenges, NAM's approach must be inclusive, transparent and anchored in reformed multilateralism," Muraleedharan tweeted.

The MoS said that terrorism is the most flagrant threat to NAM principles.

"NAM must lead efforts to strengthen international legal frameworks to combat terrorism and its enablers, without exceptions or double standards," he added.
