India Modi sensitises EU MPs to 'terror sponsor' Pakistan

Modi sensitises EU MPs to ‘terror sponsor’ Pakistan

This is the first time since the de facto abrogation of Article 370 that a foreign delegation is visiting Jammu and Kashmir; this meeting helped introduce to them the diversity of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh regions

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reiterated that international support is necessary to fight terrorism. Addressing EU MPs on Monday, he said there was a need to take strict action against those who helped and funded terrorists as terrorism was an instrument of their state policy.

The 28-member delegation of the European Parliament will visit Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday. Talking about ‘zero tolerance’ against terrorism, Modi said that by visiting Jammu and Kashmir, European MPs will get to know the cultural and religious variations of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.

The prime minister hoped that this would give the delegation an idea of ​​the prevailing conditions of the region and the priorities of the government. Narendra Modi, without naming any country, said that terrorism and fundamentalism have threatened the democratic system of India as much as of Europe.

This is the first time since Article 370 turned defunct that a foreign delegation is visiting Jammu and Kashmir. The topic has remained a matter of discussion all over the world through this period, with a few foreign powers making misinformed statements as Pakistan is carrying out propaganda against the move of the Modi government.

The EU Parliament delegation met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the presence of National Security Advisor Ajit Doval. Modi lauded the importance of the MPs’ relations with India at the beginning of his term. The prime minister hoped the members have a productive tour to other parts of the country as well. He said the visit to Jammu and Kashmir would give the delegation a better understanding of cultural and religious diversity apart from a clear view on the priorities of development and governance of the region.

The prime minister said regarding trade that early conclusion of a fair and balanced bilateral trade and investment agreement (BTIA) was a priority of his government.

The delegation met with Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu after meeting the prime minister and the NSA. Till now, no foreign delegation was allowed to visit Jammu and Kashmir.
