Terrorism’s long shadow stretches across world: Modi

Kuala Lumpur, Nov 22 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Sunday said terrorism is no longer a peripheral problem of the region but its long shadow stretches across the world.

“In this forum, we often thought of terrorism as a peripheral problem for this region,” said Modi, on the second day of his Malaysia visit at the 10th East Asia Summit that got under way here.

“The barbaric terror strikes in Paris, Ankara, Beirut, Mali and on the Russian aircraft (brought down in Egypt’s Sinai last month) is a stark reminder that its shadow stretches across our societies and our world, both in recruitment and choice of targets,” he said.

“We must build new global resolve and new strategies for combating terrorism, without balancing it against political considerations,” the Indian prime minister added.
