India on Friday welcomed UN resolution to counter terror financing and said that utility of any council resolution will be in its implementation. 

Syed Akbaruddin, India's permanent representative at UN said: ''Specifically welcome the resolution of essential role of financial action task force. The utility of any council resolution will be in its implementation.''

Terrorists are going to be ever more creative in finding ways to violate rules, he said. 


The unfortunate reality is states who are apologists for terrorists will continue to provide alibis to justify their actions and inaction too as was done by a serial offender earlier today, he said without naming Pakistan.

''Global community is impatient for action. Going forward the UN collectively needs to do more and to do it much more effectively, Akbaruddin said.

He also assured the UN that India would be a willing partner in the endeavour.

''For its part, India will be a willing partner in this endeavour,'' Akbaruddin said.
