Only a united global community can uproot both th

terrorist cells and the soil that breeds them. Countries with different political and so

cial systems should overcome any biases and abandon any double standard so as to form a united front against global terrorism.

The atrocities in New Zealand and Sri Lanka show even countries th

at seem to have a low risk of becoming the target of terrorists cannot remain immune to the scou

rge. To win a battle against terrorism, the world needs to address both the symptoms and root causes of terrorism.

In the end, instead of pointing fingers, it is essential that countries enhance both the effect

iveness and efficiency of their cooperation with real coordinated actions.The much anticipated Russia-DPRK

summit is seen as a possible chance to break the deadlock in denuclearization talks, ease Pyongyang’s sancti

ons pressure and catalyze a new drive for economic development in the region, analysts said.
