‘Extremely Unfortunate That People Are Still Making The Mistake Of Differentiating Between Good And Bad Terrorists’: PM Modi Appeals For Global Conference On Terrorism During Address At Maldives Parliament
The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made anti-terrorism as his major agenda in the second term. In his maiden visit as PM to the Maldives, he addressed the Maldivian Parliament and delivered a strong message against terrorism.
Terming it one of the important challenges facing India and Maldives, PM Modi called terrorism a threat to the human race, while pointing out how it continues to grow with state-support in many cases. The Prime Minister also appealed for a global conference over the issue so that loopholes used by the terrorists can be blocked.
"Terrorists neither have their own banks, nor the factory for weapons, still there is never any shortage of funds or weapons for them. How do they receive all this? Who gives them all these facilities? The state sponsorship to terrorism has turned out to be the biggest threat, he said.
Earlier on Monday, France welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's proposal for a global conference to tackle the threat of terrorism, saying the fight against terror is at the heart of its priorities.
Minister of State for Europe and Foreign Affairs of France Jean Baptiste Lemoyne said: "Fight against terrorism is at the heart of our priorities... France stands alongside India on this... and I can say that we have strong relations on this front," he added.
