Pain of 26/11 remains: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses the inaugural session of 18th SAARC Summit in Kathmandu on Wednesday.  

Prime Minister Narendra Modi recalled the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai during his SAARC speech, calling on all countries in the region to keep their pledge to “combat terrorism.” Mr. Modi made no reference to the slow pace of the trial in Pakistan, which India has raised bilaterally.



“As we remember the horror of the terror attack in Mumbai in 2008, we feel the endless pain of lost lives,” said the Prime Minister.



“Let us work together to fulfil the pledge we have taken to combat terrorism and trans-national crimes.”



Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani made a strong reference to terrorism, criticising “state actors who use non-state actors as a terror tool.”
