UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has used the approaching 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States to renew his call for a global counterterrorism treaty.

The UN has more than a dozen separate treaties which cover terrorism, including bombing, hijacking, use of weapons of mass destruction, and terror financing, but over the past 10 years negotiations on a comprehensive global convention have repeatedly broken down amid arguments over what constitutes terrorism and who is a terrorist.

Ban, speaking on a visit to Australia, said that was regrettable, adding that "terrorism cannot be justified under any circumstances."
