UNSC Resolution 1373

The United Nations Security Council Resolution 1373 was adopted by the UN Security Council unanimously on September 28th 2001 after the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States of America. It was a counter-terrorism strategy and was adopted under chapter VII of the UN charter. Thus, it is binding on all member states of the UN. Previously, resolutions adopted under chapter VII was assumed to be valid only if all the members had voluntarily signed the treaty. But in this case, the Security Council had imposed it on all the members. This resolution led to the creation of the Security Council’s Counter Terrorism Committee.
