United Nations, Dec 2 (PTI) Terrorism has emerged as one of the means of waging war in the contemporary world and it threatens to engulf the planet in a carnage similar to the one witnessed during the two World Wars, India has said, calling for global action to defeat the scourge.

"The commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War provides us with an opportunity to reaffirm commitment to the most fundamental principle and purpose of the United Nations that is to ensure that successive generations are saved from the scourge of war," First Secretary in India's Permanent Mission to the UN Ashish Sharma said on Monday.
