High-level commitment must to control terrorism: DPM Nidhi

KATHMANDU: Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Bimalendra Nidhi has said that high-level commitment was essential to control terrorism as it has become a serious global challenge.

At an inaugural of the Third International Conference on Counter Terrorism that began in New Delhi, India, on Tuesday, DPM Nidhi expressed the view that security became the issue of grave concern for international community.
