Terrorism by nature thrives on the vulnerabilities of democratic States and lacuna in international law. Much of the rules of war and norms are based on the presumption that the parties to the conflict are conventional armies of responsible States, but terrorists totally disregard these laws and principles, External Affairs Deputy Minister Gitanjana Gunawardena said. The Deputy Minister was addressing the 17th ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) in Hanoi.
