Here are top quotes from PM Narendra Modi
BRICS and BIMSTEC have been shaped by different context. Together we represent two-thirds of humanity.
But we are joined by common vision and peace, stability and development. We are also united by similar challenges and concerns.
Geographical barriers and borders pose no limitations on those who wish to harm our societies.
In South Asia and BIMSTEC, all nation states barring one are motivated to pursue a path of peace, development and economic prosperity.
Unfortunately, this country in India’s neighbourhood embraces and radiates the darkness of terrorism.
Terrorism has become its favourite child, and the child in turn has come to define the essential nature of its parents.
To those who nurture the philosophy of terror and seek to demoralise mankind, we must send a clear msg to mend ways or be isolated.
