Heres what Narendra Modi said on the World Economic Forum
Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the World Economic Forum (WEF) here today in which he highlighted the many serious challenges and grave concerns facing the world with terrorism being at the top.
He listed climate change and terrorism as grave concerns before the world and asserted that equally dangerous is the artificial distinction made between ‘good terrorist’ and ‘bad terrorist’.
He also said India’s position on the menace of terrorism is well known and he would not like to elaborate on that.
Prime Minister Modi, who arrived here yesterday, said issues of peace, security and stability have emerged as serious global challenges.
He also noted that the last time when an Indian prime minister came here in 1997, India’s GDP was a little more than USD 400 billion but now it has increased more than six-times.
Referring to WEF’s theme of ‘Creating a shared future in a fractured world’, PM Modi cited the Indian philosophy of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (the world is one family) terming it all the more relevant in today’s world. >
