The Security Council unanimously adopts resolution 2341 (2017), calling upon Member States to consider developing or further improving their strategies for reducing risks to critical infrastructure from terrorist attacks.

Credit: UN NewsInternational community needs to unite – UN chief Guterres’ Chef de Cabinet Noting that international counter-terrorism cooperation – especially in the area of critical infrastructure – has been limited, Maria Luiza Viotti, Chef de Cabinet of the Secretary-General António Guterres, called on all international community to unite in a coordinated response and outlined the importance of a coordinated response comprising all actors and stakeholders.“Strategically, this means that the international community needs to unite and be more creative, proactive and effective, including through the development of strong public-private partnerships,” she said, delivering the UN chief’s message to the forum.“As our world becomes increasingly interconnected – through travel, commerce, communications and in cyber space, we become more vulnerable to attacks by technologically savvy terrorists seeking new ways to spread fear,” Ms. Viotti added. In a resolution adopted unanimously today, the 15-member Council reiterated “the need to strengthen efforts to improve security and protection of particularly vulnerable targets, such as infrastructure and public places.”Attacks against objects and sectors such as banking and finance, telecommunications, emergency services, air, maritime and rail transportation, and energy and water supply – perceived as ‘attractive targets’ for terrorist groups – can result not only in civilian casualties, but also damage property on a large scale, disrupt proper functioning of public services, and create chaos in societies.Such attacks may also cause widespread environmental damage, as well as significantly undermine national defence capabilities.Further in the resolution, the Security Council – the UN body with the responsibility for maintenance of international peace and security – also underscored the importance of partnerships at all levels and with public and private stakeholders.It called upon UN Member States “to share information […] to prevent, protect, mitigate, investigate, respond to and recover from damage from terrorist attacks on critical infrastructure facilities, including through joint training, and use or establishment of relevant communication or emergency warning networks.”The resolution was adopted at an open Security Council debate on vulnerabilities, interdependencies and capabilities and the cascading impacts of terrorist attacks on critical infrastructure, as well as measures to prevent them. One attack can have a ripple effect worldwide – INTERPOL chief Also cautioning that the consequences of an attack in today’s interconnected world could be far reaching, Jürgen Stock, the Secretary-General of the International Criminal Police Organization (ICPO-INTERPOL) said: “One attack on a single point of failure could lead to the disruption or destruction of multiple vital systems in the country directly affected, and a ripple effect worldwide.”“This creates an appealing target to those intending to harm us. And as our cities and infrastructure evolve, so do their weapons,” he added.To mitigate such threats, he called for strengthening critical site security and emergency preparedness standards and procedures; protecting national borders and countering terrorist mobility; enhancing vigilance and efforts to interdict materials and tools before they become the “next weapon”; and boosting inter-agency and international collaboration, as a force multiplier.“In an interconnected world, we will not succeed in protecting national infrastructure in isolation. This is why initiatives […] and the steps […] by the international community are essential,” he underlined.Other speakers speaking at the debate included Hamid Ali Rao, Deputy Director-General of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW); Chris Trelawny, Special Adviser to the Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organizations (IMO) on Maritime Security and Facilitation; Olli Heinonen, Senior Advisor on Science and Non-proliferation at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and former Deputy Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Rehabilitation courses for drink-drivers should be urgently reviewed, the AA has insisted after it emerged that more than 8,000 drivers have been caught over the limit at least twice in the past five years.DVLA figures released in response to a Freedom of Information (FoI) request also show that hundreds of motorists were prosecuted for drink-driving three or more times between 2011 and 2015.Overall, 219,008 people in mainland Britain were given endorsements on their licence for driving or attempting to drive while above the legal alcohol limit in that time while 8,068 were caught twice. The road safety charity Brake said: “It is appalling that offenders are being allowed to continue driving after being caught drink-driving multiple times.“These are individuals who clearly have no regard for the lives of others. They have been granted ample opportunity to change their behaviour and should face the full force of the law.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Another 449 drivers were banned for drink-driving three times in those four years with dozens caught more than that.Two drivers were even prosecuted for the offence six times.Motorists caught drink-driving face a ban of at least a year, an unlimited fine and in the most serious cases up to six months’ imprisonment.But some are offered places on rehabilitation courses to reduce the length of their disqualification.Edmund King, president of the AA, said: “The fact that more than 8,000 drivers have been caught twice in five years is all the more astonishing when they should have been off the road for a year or more.“The repeat offender figures also suggest that a minority of drivers have a drink problem rather than a driving problem.“Perhaps it is time to review some of the medical checks and rehabilitation courses before allowing these drivers back on the road.” Perhaps it is time to review some of the medical checks and rehabilitation courses before allowing these drivers back on the roadEdmund King, AA president
