London, Nov. 12 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said combating terrorism is the responsibility of all forces that believe in humanity.
“The issue of terrorism bothers anyone who believes in humanity. Today I am relieved to say that every time the issue of terrorism was raised in the United Nations, India and Britain played an equal role,” said Prime Minister Modi while addressing a joint press conference along with his British counterpart David Cameron at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) here.
“In Afghanistan, a lot of British soldiers have lost their lives, and so have the Indian soldiers. Both our countries are disturbed by the issue of terrorism. Fighting against terrorism is not an issue bothering only a few countries; it is the responsibility of one and all. Today, terrorism has spread so far and wide that they have no boundaries anymore. New organisations come up each day,” he added.
Prime Minister Modi further said justice is delivered when one knows what injustice really is.
“We have put forward a document that seeks the definition of terrorism…..Both countries are devoted towards the same. Thus, all humanitarian countries must come together and nab all forces supporting terrorism,” he added.
The British Prime Minister on his part said that they had preliminary discussions today about the terrorist threat that both nations face.
“We are going to have intensive discussions tomorrow morning. India suffered on the streets of Mumbai for instance and we have suffered on the streets of London. And we have to confront particularly these extremist violent and terrorist organisations which is not only doing damage to our countries but also to the world,” he added. (ANI)
