PM Modi to BRICS nations: “Terror and financial crimes are the biggest global threats”

Modi also called the attention of the BRICS nations to work towards a common interest.

PM Modi and other BRICS leaders met on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina on Friday. PM Modi, while addressing the meeting, claimed that terror and financial crimes are two of the biggest threats the world is facing today.

Exhorting his counterparts to unite against the menace of terrorism, PM Modi underlined the grave threats the world faces from Terrorism and Financial Crimes. “Terrorism and radicalism are threats to global peace. Those who indulge in financial felonies also pose a serious risk to the world order. We have to unite against this menace. We have to fight against the Black money,” he said.

Modi also drew attention to the need to work towards a common interest. Calling upon the developing nations to join together to raise their issues with the United Nations, PM Modi said it is therefore imperative for BRICS nations to take a cohesive stand for this.

“We condemn the persisting terrorist attacks, including against some BRICS countries. Terrorism in all forms and manifestations, wherever committed and by whom so ever is detestable. We appeal for concerted efforts to counter terrorism under the auspices of UN on a firm international legal basis. We request all nations to adopt a comprehensive approach in combating terrorism, including all the elements identified in the Johannesburg Declaration,” the BRICS statement noted endorsing the Indian PM’s remarks.

The BRICS leaders extended their full commitment to multilateralism and WTO in the dynamic geopolitics and geo-economics. “We express our full support for the rules-based multilateral trading system, as personified in the WTO, to ensure clear, impartial, open and inclusive international trade,” the BRICS statement said.

BRICS leaders conveyed their willingness to engage in candid and result-oriented discussions with other WTO members with a prospect to improve the working of the WTO. The vision and rules of the WTO run counter to unipartite and protectionist measures. In addition, they also requested the members to oppose inconsistencies and discriminating measures adopted by WTO and uphold the commitments undertaken in the WTO.
