In a 2005 UN article (or speech) about terrorism, it has been written (or said):

"fourth, to develop state capacity to prevent terrorism".

The above is one of five elements that consist a global strategy of fighting terrorism.

What I'd like to know is the meaning of State Capacity.

Thanks in advance.
"state capacity" means the ability of states (countries) to prevent terrorism, for example by having appropriate organisations and infrastructure in place.
I see. Thank you. Emotion: smile
