Addressing the concluding function of 3rd 'No Money for Terror' Ministerial Conference on Counter-Terrorism Financing, he said some countries and their agencies have made terrorism their State policy.

"In these terror havens, it's necessary to shackle their unrestrained activities along with economic crackdown. All countries have to rise above their geo-political interests," Shah said.
