Combating cross-border terrorism and its supporters will be a key priority for BRICS, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday announcing decisions taken by top leaders of the five-nation influential grouping at its annual summit. In his concluding remarks at the BRICS summit, Modi said it was agreed at the summit that those who nurture, shelter, support and sponsor forces of violence and terror are as much a “threat to us” as terrorists themselves and efforts must be speeded up to deal with the menace.

This is seen as a boost to India’s stand on the issue as it has been pitching for isolation of Pakistan for its ‘terror export’. Modi said the leaders were unanimous in recognising the threat that terror, extremism and radicalization present to regional and global peace, stability and economic prosperity.

“We underscored the need for close coordination on tracking sources of terrorist financing and target the hardware of terrorism, including weapons’ supplies, ammunition, equipment and training,” he said.

He said there was unanimity in recognising the threat that terrorism, extremism and radicalisation presents and BRICS leaders expressed commitment to strengthen consultations and cooperation on matters of security.

“We underscored the need for close coordination on tracking sources of terrorist financing,” he said. On key agenda of the grouping, Modi said putting the global economy back on track was another focus point of the deliberations, adding the discussions at the summit were “detailed, substantive and productive”.

The Prime Minister said there was deliberations on possibility of setting up an independent BRICS Rating Agency based on market-oriented principles, in order to further strengthen the global governance architecture.

Modi said the Goa declaration lays a comprehensive vision for cooperation within BRICS and international issues.

The Prime Minister said there was also a clear need to build norms, create structures and pool capacities to stop tax evasion, and fight against black money and corruption.

        Hiw the terrorism started and what was the seed that gave rise to it?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;In Islam it is accepted by certain school of thoughts that if you can not "fight" directly, you can give money to some one to do the "fighting" for you! It doubles the "benefit" one for you and one for the "fighter"! lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Being largely poor, many for better economic "life" found this as a way out to "live" a better as well as a "blessed" life! Then of course it became an industry by itself! And now its a terror machine which is even "blessed" by one God!

                      Did any of the other four leaders in BRICS even mention terrorism and stan by name or reference in their statements? NO. Modi is just frothing at the mouth with his useless rants. The Western media did not even mention BRICS other than a side note let alone Modi's childish rants. This is the reality. India can try to isolate stan until the cows come home and nothing is going to happen. Nada. So keep crying.

                        Its amazing to see the endless rants about terrorism from the butcher of Gujarat yet not even a peep about 100 killed in IOK and more than 1000 injured. Hypocrisy at its highest.

                          It is clearly a victory of Mr. Modi's foreign policy.

                                  In the current era, conventional wars have become obsolete in view of sophiscated and highly disastrous warfare arms and ammunition mostly laced with nuclear material, which when used to and fro will not only annihilate the eyeball to eyeball facing war mongers but the entire chunk of humanity in closer regions, the devastation will be a divinely orchestrated holocaust. The best way to inflict a scintillating painful blow is to create a legitimate situation by way of intelligence by high the foe is isolated from the world countries so that the country is forced to breathe in isolation. The country is forced to perceive that it is a discard, debilating, disgusting and degenerating eny.

                                          The muslims under Mohammad started to control the planet through violence, terror and intimidation and conversion. Over a journey of 1400 years they are now ending up as beggars, cheats, thugs, orphans, refugees, pimps and a hounded lot. Allah is great he saw well in time Mohammad's evil designs.and put him in place where he belonged
