On 2 May, Secretary General Kofi Annan released his recommendations for a global counter-terrorism strategy, building on the “five Ds” outlined at the Madrid Summit in March 2005 –(1) dissuading people from resorting to terrorism or supporting it, (2) denying terrorists the means to carry out an attack, (3) deterring States from supporting terrorism, (4) developing State capacity to defeat terrorism, and (5) defending human rights. The report condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and stresses the need to ensure human rights when countering terrorism.
