Modi was talking to media at the BRICS Summit on Saturday, the BRICS countries also adopted the Goa Declaration, which Modi said, would lay down a comprehensive vision for cooperation and coordination within BRICS and on international issues.

“We were unanimous in recognising the threat that terrorism, extremism and radicalisation presents, not just to the regional and global peace, stability and economic prosperity. But, also to our society, our way of life and humanity as a whole,” Modi said.  “We were also one in agreeing that BRICS need to work together and act decisively to combat this threat”.

“We underscored the need for close coordination on tracking sources of terrorist financing; and targeting the hardware of terrorism, including weapons’ supplies, ammunition, equipment, and training. We also agreed that those who nurture, shelter, support and sponsor such forces of violence and terror are as much a threat to us as the terrorists themselves,” he said.
