At UN, Modi calls for joint fight against terror
United Nations, Sep 27: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday urged world nations to come together and fight the menace of terrorism that he said "continues to raise its head in different forms".

Debuting at the United Nations as the prime minister of India, Modi in his address to the 69th session of the General Assembly said that terrorism had spread far and wide and that there was hardly any country that has stayed untouched.

He said he used to raise the issue with world leaders 20 years ago and "they wouldn't understand" the danger terrorism posed to world peace.

"They would say it is a law and order problem," he said and urged the world body to pass the convention on counter-terrorism measures.

"Let's have a discussion on the convention and pass it," the prime minister said, adding that this would strengthen the world belief that this forum was serious about tackling terrorism.
