New Delhi/Hamburg: Targeting Pakistan without naming it, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as lead speaker at a session on the issue of terrorism at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, presented a 11-point action plan that called for action against nations sponsoring terrorism and a ban on officials of such nations entering G-20 countries.
“The Prime Minister leads the way on one of the most grave issues of our times...,” Baglay tweeted. Apart from calling for exchange of national lists of suspected terrorists and for joint action against such terrorists and their supporters, Mr Narendra Modi also pitched for simplification and expediting of legal recourses like extradition for effective action against terrorists.
Without naming Pakistan or any other country, he said the basic form of terrorism is based on “different names and one thinking” as he listed ISIS and al-Qaeda in the Middle East, Lashkar-e-Tayyaba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and the Haqqani network in South Asia and Boko Haram in Nigeria as “some names related to terrorism”.
He said the basic ideology of all these groups is “hatred and killing”. “Some nations are using terrorists to further their political goals,” Mr Modi said.
“Today, countries are less networked in terms of response and terrorists are better networked as the scope of our actions are mostly national,” he said....
