“I would just like to thank-you for your support. You made my enrolment and interaction with City Colleges seamless which made the whole process enjoyable. Also, could you pass onto the IT Dept my thanks. I had to contact the IT Dept twice and this occurred late at night (Australian time) and I received a workable solution within 5-10 min. Their service was excellent! I have benefited from the course and will recommend the college to others. I will certainly consider doing another course with the college in the future.”
Edward McCann, April 2017
Currently, the negotiations of the Comprehensive Terrorism Convention are deadlocked because of differences over the definition of terrorism . Thalif Deen described the situation as follows: "The key sticking points in the draft treaty revolve around several controversial yet basic issues, including the definition of ´terrorism´. For example, what distinguishes a "terrorist organisation" from a 'liberation movement'? And do you exclude activities of national armed forces, even if they are perceived to commit acts of terrorism? If not, how much of this constitutes 'state terrorism'?"  India has proposed this convention in 1996 and has since demanded consistently, especially in the wake of 26/11(Terrorist attack at the Taj Hotel,Mumbai on ). The issue was once again pushed by the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi in his address at the 69th Session of the UN General Assembly held on September 27, 2014. After July 1, 2016 Dhaka attack India pushed for the implementation of UN convention on international terrorism. [ citation needed ]
