External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Tuesday sought China's support for the convention against terrorism proposed by India at the UN, and said, "all nations should join hands to thwart the evil designs of terrorists."

Ahead of his talks with the Chinese leadership, Krishna said, in view of the multi-dimensional threats posed by terrorism it has become necessary to step up the fight against the menace under the aegis of the United Nations.

"India has come out with a proposal for a comprehensive legislation or a convention in the UN to face terrorism as a universal threat and every country should co-operate with each other in order to thwart the evil designs of terror and terrorists," he said, while speaking to the media on sidelines of his address at an institute of Sino-Indian relations.

Krishna, who arrived in Beijing last night, would hold talks with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi and Premier Wen Jiabao on Tuesday.
