“As we remember 26/11, must keep commitments on security for all South Asia. Today, as we remember the horror of the attack in Mumbai in 2008, we feel the endless pain of lost life. Let us work together to fulfill the pledge we have taken to combat terrorism and trans-national crimes," Modi said at the SAARC summit in the Nepalese capital Kathmandu.
“If we are sensitive to each other’s security, and the lives of our people, we will deepen friendships, spur cooperation and advance stability in our region,” the prime minister added.
On Tuesday, Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj also called for a "collective response" from the SAARC to deal with the threat of terrorism, one of the most pressing problems in the South Asian region.
SAARC is an economic and political organization of eight countries: India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Maldives and Bangladesh.
The 18th SAARC summit is being held in Kathmandu, the Nepalese capital, on November 26–27.
