In an apparent reference to UN General Assembly speeches by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan, Vice-President M. Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday said that while one was about peace and welfare, the other was about hatred and violence.

Speaking at the inaugural function of a four-day global peace summit here, Mr. Naidu called upon the world to come together on the issue of terrorism and isolate those who were behind the menace.

Referring to the speeches by Indian and Pakistan Prime Ministers, but naming neither, at the UNGA on Friday, Mr. Naidu said, “We listened to the speeches in the United Nations General Assembly. One was about peace, progress and welfare, while the other was about hatred and violence. The choice is before the world.”
