Indian PM Narendra Modi asked all nations to work collectively to completely eliminate terrorism which is disturbing the global peace process. PM Modi is in South Korea and appreciated the nations efforts to boost counter-terrorism cooperation between the two countries.
During his two-day visit to South Korea, Indian PM Modi expressed his gratitude for South Korea’s support in the aftermath of the worst terror attacks that killed 40 CRPF soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14. “The time had come when the world, going beyond the talks, should “unite and act” against terrorism”, said the Prime Minister while addressing media. Indian PM also received the prestigious Seoul Peace Prize for 2018 in South Korea.
In reference to Pakistan, which is accused of providing safe havens to several terror groups, Modi said: “Our endeavour towards peaceful developments has only too often been derailed by cross-border terrorism. While India had been the victim of cross-border terrorism for over 40 years, all nations today faced this grave threat which respected no borders. Today, radicalisation and terrorism have become globalized and are the biggest threats to global peace and security.”
“The time has come for all those who believe in humanity to join hands, to completely eradicate terrorist networks, and their financing supply channels and counter terrorist ideology and propaganda. Only by doing so can we replace hate with harmony, destruction with development, and transform the landscape of violence and vendetta into a post-guard of peace,” the Indian Prime Minister added.
Indian PM Modi expressed his gratitude to President Moon for his sympathies and support on the Pulwama attack. “We are committed to strengthening our bilateral and multilateral cooperation against terrorism,” he added. The MoU was also signed between India’s Home Ministry and South Korea’s National Police Agency to boost the counter-terrorism cooperation between the two sides.
