Calling India and Africa two “bright spots” of hope and opportunities in the global economy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said both sides must work together to defeat terrorism.

African leaders, especially from Kenya, Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Somalia and Egypt also supported the fight against terrorism and piracy.

“Today, in many parts of the world, the light of a bright future flickers in the storm of violence and instability. When terror snuffs out life on the streets and beaches, and in malls and schools of Africa, we feel your pain as our own. And we see the links that unite us against this threat,” said Modi.

“Terrorism and violent extremism have emerged as primary threats to nations and our societies,” said the joint document. “Tackling this challenge requires global strategy and cooperation. We emphasise that no cause or grievance can justify acts of terror and resolve to maintain zero tolerance against terrorism. We call on all countries to ensure that their territories are not used for cross-border terrorist activities. We strongly condemn direct or indirect financial assistance given to terrorist groups or individual members thereof by states or their machinery, to pursue such activities,” it said.
