WELLINGTON, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- The New Zealand government has named three more groups on its list of international terrorist groups, Prime Minister John Key said Tuesday.

The groups were Jundallah in Iran, the Revolutionary People's Army/Party (DHKP/C) in Turkey, and the Shining Path in Peru.

"These designations help implement our international obligations under United Nations Security Council Resolution 1373 aimed at preventing the activities of terrorists," said Key.

All three groups had committed terrorist acts, including the killing of civilians, he said.

Any support, such as fundraising and recruiting or harboring terrorists, were criminal offences in New Zealand, regardless of whether or not a group was designated as a terrorist entity.

New Zealand has designated under UN Security Council Resolution 1267 nearly 500 terrorist groups and individuals listed by the United Nations, and the three groups designated brings the number of terrorist entities not listed by the UN to 17.

The others are Al Shabaab (Somalia), ETA (Spain), FARC ( Colombia), ELN (Colombia), PKK (Turkey), Indian Mujahideen, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the military wing of Hamas or Izz al- Din al-Qassam Brigades (Occupied Palestinian Territory), Real Irish Republican Army (RIRA), Continuity Irish Republican Army ( CIRA), Harakat al-Jihad al Islami-Bangladesh (HUJI-B), Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade (AABM) (Occupied Palestinian Territory), New People's Army/Communist Party of the Philippines, Hizbollah's Military Wing or Al-Muqawama Al-Islamiyya (The Islamic Resistance) (Lebanon and the Occupied Palestinian Territory).
