In the context of the regional situation, the Prime Minister stated that extreme rhetoric and incitement to anti-India violence by certain leaders in the region was not conducive to peace.
PM Modi highlighted the importance of creating an environment free from terror and violence and eschewing cross-border terrorism without exception.
The Prime Minister reiterated India’s commitment to cooperate with anyone who followed this path, in fighting poverty, illiteracy and disease.
The Prime Minister recalled their meeting in Osaka on the margins of G-20 summit in end-June earlier this year.
Referring to their bilateral discussions in Osaka, the Prime Minister expressed the hope that the Commerce Minister of India and the US Trade Representative would meet at an early date to discuss bilateral trade prospects for mutual benefit.
