Modi calls for fight against terror

By The Assam Tribune

KATHMANDU, Nov 26 � Pakistan�s intransigence today came in the way of the SAARC Summit signing agreements on greater connectivity among the eight member nations on its opening day, marked by Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking the members to fulfill their commitment to combat terrorism, reports PTI.

As the opening of the summit coincided with the sixth anniversary of Pakistan-sponsored 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai which left 166 people dead, Modi told his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif and six other leaders that, �we feel the endless pain of lost lives.�

Sharif on his part totally skipped any reference to the issue of terrorism, on which other leaders including new Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa spoke in their speeches.

Rajapaksa said, �Terrorism still remains a fundamental security challenge both regionally and internationally... radical views of few and misplaced agenda of some others do not undermine the security and well-being of large majority of peace loving people in the region.�
