Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hit out at Pakistan, saying countries must work together against terrorism. Modi said BRICS must play an active role in setting a direction that supports “our common aspirations and goals”. PM Modi was speaking at the welcome meeting on day two of the Summit where he urged member nations to unite in their fight against terrorism that was posing a threat to economic prosperity across the world.

“The growing arc of terrorism today threatens Middle East, West Asia, Europe and South Asia. Its violent footprints put at risk the security of our citizens and undercuts our efforts aimed at economic growth. In our own region, terrorism poses a grave threat to peace, security and development. Tragically its mothership is a country in India’s neighbourhood. Terror modules around the world are linked to this mothership. This country shelters not just terrorists. It nurtures a mindset. A mindset that loudly proclaims that terrorism is justified for political gains. It is a mindset that we strongly condemn. And, against which we as BRICS need to stand and act together. BRICS must speak in one voice against this threat,” PM Modi said.

At the Sunday morning meeting, which was restricted, Modi also called upon member nations  to work together for early adoption of CCIT, step up practical cooperation against terrorism.

On economic development, PM Modi said BRICS must play an active role in setting a direction that supports the groups common aspirations and goals.

“Our increasing inter-dependence means that our march towards economic prosperity cannot be separated from the emerging geo-political context.

“BRICS, therefore, must play an active role in setting a direction that supports our common aspirations and goals. I firmly believe that the simultaneous development of Brazil, Russia, China, South Africa and India is the best bet for global growth and development,” he said.

      India has to think our of the box.. spending billions for ammo to please big will end India into more poverty and self destruction.. on the other hand addressing the core issue of kashmir will help to eradicate its troubles .. If BJP thinks radically then there is no way out

No surgical strike took place yet PM Modi giving lolipop for votes.Should we not review our policies and make our economy more stronger instead of looking towards Russia and China.
