Without naming Pakistan, Prime Minister Modi said “…Countries with regressive thinking that are using terrorism as a political tool need to understand that terrorism is an equally big threat for them.”
He also said that “it has to be ensured that Afghanistan isn’t used to spread terrorism or launch terror attacks…”
He also exhorted that the world shouldn’t abuse oceans.
