Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump on Monday struck a common note on errorism, vowing to strengthen efforts to fight the scourge and eliminate safe havens for terrorists. “Eliminating terrorism is among the topmost priorities for us,” Modi said in his joint statement with the US president at the White House Rose Garden. “We talked about terrorism, extremism and radicalisation and agreed to cooperate on this. Fighting terrorism and doing away with the safe shelters, sanctuaries, and safe havens will be an important part of our cooperation,” he said.
