Prime Minister Narendra Modi today asked top diplomats of the country to find “solutions to the toughest of situations” and unite all forces to fight the scourge of terrorism.

Addressing the Heads of (diplomatic) Missions (HoMs) on the last day of a five-day conference, organised by External Affairs Ministry, Modi said,

“We have entered a new era of diplomatic engagement, we must adapt to deliver more to meet India’s aspirations.”

Asserting that India’s profile has grown exponentially, Modi said,”We must match our steps with the world.”

Describing the International Solar Alliance as “an emotive issue” for a large majority of the world, he said India’s leadership in this area was commendable.

He also asked the envoys to work on better linkages between states and the world, saying their visit to their respective home states must bear fruit and strengthen the linkages.

The five-day conference discussed various issues relating to foreign policy, government’s flagship programmes and India’s economic and trade relations with various countries.
