dc.description.abstract No one definition of terrorism has gained universal acceptance. The lack of agreement on a definition of terrorism has been a major obstacle to meaningful international countermeasures to combat terrorism. There are 12 International Conventions related to terrorism and an explicit definition is still missing. Many states have tried to define terrorism and none of these definitions has been implemented, either by the United Nations or these states. There are many International Conventions, Protocols and Treaties related to state responsibilities to combating terrorism. Many states are not yet part to these legal instruments or not yet implementing them. Following the attack in the United States of America, the United Nations Security Council had passed three Resolutions to combat terrorism. None of these resolutions were implemented successfully. Article 51 of the United Nations Charter gives a state a right to repel on attack that is ongoing or imminent as a temporary measure. This Article has been used by states to eliminate terrorism. International Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist Bombing, enable the State Parties to extradite and exercise jurisdiction over terrorist and to cooperate in the investigation, prosecution, and extradition of persons who engage in terrorist activities by establishing a regime of universal jurisdiction to punish the crime of terrorist bombings. The states must develop and adopt bilateral and multilateral agreements to increase cooperation between them. en_US
