NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi cited India's growth and how this will impact the world. He regarded India as the mother of democracy.
Prime Minister took on China’s expansionism in the Indo-Pacific and its capacity to undermine other nations.
Modi asked the global community to be alert and ensure that no country tries to take advantage of the situation in Afghanistan and use it as a tool to promote their own interests.
He also said that the international fraternity should not abandon Afghanistan where people including women, children and minorities need help.
At his address to the UN General Assembly (UNGA), PM Modi took a swipe at Pakistan over "using terrorism as a political tool."
Pakistan faced criticisms for sheltering terror groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed.
