Goa: Myanmar Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi during her address at the BRICS-BIMSTEC outreach summit in Goa on Sunday sympathised with India on the issue of terrorism and said, “We wholly sympathise with people of India with regard to terror attack in Uri not so long ago.”
Aung San Suu Kyi continued and said, “Rising terrorism has become a source of common concern. We need to stand together against all forms of violent extremism. Would like to put special emphasis on the peace efforts in our country.”
“It is important that our country be at peace and the whole region enjoys the benefits of stability. Our efforts of peace are complex, we are a nation made up of many different ethnic nationalities,” Aung San Suu Kyi said.
“We have been able to achieve ceasefire agreements with 8 of many armed ethnic groups who have to be part of peace process,” Aung San Suu Kyi added.
Earlier speaking at the plenary session of the BRICS-BIMSTEC Summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared the importance of summit and had said, “BRICS and BIMSTEC have been shaped by different context. Together we represent two thirds of humanity. Geographical barriers and borders pose no limitations on those who wish to harm our societies.”
He also addressed the issue of terrorism and indirectly hit out Pakistan. PM Modi said, “One country in India’s neighbourhood embraces and radiates darkness of terror; terrorism has become its favourite child”.
