and 1699 (2006) of 8 August 2006, and the relevant statements of its President,
Reaffirming that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of
the most serious threats to peace and security and that any acts of terrorism are
criminal and unjustifiable regardless of their motivations, whenever and by
whomsoever committed; and reiterating its unequivocal condemnation of Al-Qaida,
Usama bin Laden, the Taliban, and other individuals, groups, undertakings, and
entities associated with them, for ongoing and multiple criminal terrorist acts aimed
at causing the death of innocent civilians and other victims, destruction of property
and greatly undermining stability,
Expressing its deep concern about the increased violent and terrorist activities
in Afghanistan of the Taliban and Al-Qaida, and other individuals, groups,
undertakings, and entities associated with them,
Reaffirming the need to combat by all means, in accordance with the Charter
of the United Nations and international law, threats to international peace and
security caused by terrorist acts, stressing in this regard the important role the
United Nations plays in leading and coordinating this effort,
Stressing that terrorism can only be defeated by a sustained and comprehensive
approach involving the active participation and collaboration of all States, and
international and regional organizations to impede, impair, isolate, and incapacitate
the terrorist threat,
Emphasizing that dialogue between the Committee established pursuant to
resolution 1267 (1999) (“the Committee”) and Member States is vital to the full
implementation of the measures,
S/RES/1735 (2006)
2 06-68014
Recognizing that one of the most effective means of dialogue between the
Committee and Member States is through direct contact, including country visits,
Welcoming the expanded cooperation with Interpol, including the
establishment of “Interpol — UN Security Council Special Notices” and the passage
of resolution 1699 (2006), and encouraging Member States to work in the
framework of Interpol and other international and regional organizations in order to
reinforce the implementation of the measures against Al-Qaida, Usama bin Laden,
and the Taliban, and other individuals, groups, undertakings and entities associated
with them,
Noting the need for robust implementation of the measures in paragraph 1 of
this resolution as a significant tool in combating terrorist activity,
Reiterating that the measures referred to in paragraph 1 below, are
preventative in nature and are not reliant upon criminal standards set out under
national law,
Underscoring that, in giving effect to the measures in paragraph 1 of
resolution 1617 (2005) and other relevant resolutions, full account is to be taken of
the provisions regarding exemptions in paragraphs 1 and 2 of resolution 1452
(2002),
Taking note of the Committee’s document on the arms embargo
(SCA/2/06(20)), which is intended to be a useful tool to assist States in the
implementation of the measures in paragraph 1(c) of this resolution,
Expressing its deep concern about criminal misuse of the internet by Al-Qaida,
Usama bin Laden, and the Taliban, and other individuals, groups, undertakings, and
entities associated with them, in furtherance of terrorist acts,
Noting with concern the changing nature of the threat presented by Al-Qaida,
Usama bin Laden and the Taliban, and other individuals, groups, undertakings and
entities associated with them, in particular the ways in which terrorist ideologies are
promoted,
Stressing the importance of meeting all aspects of the threat that Al-Qaida,
Usama bin Laden and the Taliban, and other individuals, groups, undertakings and
entities associated with them represent to international peace and security,
Acting under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations,
