"Elimination of terrorism and militancy is interlinked with 'redressing inequalities, the theme of the 136th Assembly of Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU) that is being held in Dhaka" she observed.

The JS speaker termed terrorism and militancy is a global problem saying that the leaders from across the world particularly the members of parliaments of different countries who are attending the assembly should come up with a fruitful discussion on the issue.
