Union Home Minister Amit Shah will attend the conference and convey India’s resolve in its fight against terrorism as well as its support systems to succeed against it.
The conference aims to advance discussions on countering the financing of terrorism held by the international community at the two previous conferences in Paris (2018) and Melbourne (2019), the statement said.
It also intends to include discussions on the technical, legal, regulatory and cooperation aspects of all facets of terrorist financing.
It also attempts to set the tone for other high-level official and political deliberations focused on countering the financing of terrorism.
Globally, countries have been affected by terrorism and militancy for several years. The pattern of violence differs in most theaters, but is largely spawned by a tumultuous geopolitical environment, coupled with protracted sectarian armed conflict, the statement said.
These conflicts often result in poor governance, political instability, economic deprivation and vast ungoverned spaces. The involvement of a docile state often exacerbates terrorism, especially its financing.

Discussions at the 3rd No Money For Terror Conference will focus on global trends in terrorism and terrorist financing, the use of formal and informal financing channels for terrorism, emerging technologies and terrorist financing and the international cooperation needed to address related challenges, the statement said.
