HT Correspondent, New Delhi:
The “mother ship” of terrorism is a country in India’s neighbourhood and extremist modules across the world are
linked to it, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday, referring to Pakistan.
At the leaders’ restricted meeting, Modi said terrorism posed a grave threat to peace, security and development and the BRICS group must speak out in one voice against it.
Earlier during the day, Modi held bilateral talks with Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena and Bhutanese counterpart Tshering Tobgay.
