India- Malaysia to jointly fight terrorism

modi -malayisyaPrime Minister Narendra Modi and Prime Minister Dato Najib Tun Razak have jointly addressed a press conference after the ASEAN and East Asia summit meeting in Kuala Lumpur. Modi had a word of praise for PM Dato in providing leadership at the summit in combating extremism and radicalization rejecting any link between terrorism and religion and in highlighting the real values of Islam. The recent spate of attacks in different countries, not to mention the ceaseless terrorist attempts against India and Afghanistan, were a reminder of the global nature of this threat. “ This is a great contribution to an important aspect of our global efforts against this challenge. We will also make our defence cooperation stronger, including for advancing maritime security and strengthening disaster response in our region. I am pleased that we have agreed to upgrade our joint exercises and set up the SU-30 Forum,” Modi said. He also spoke about the agreement to cooperate in cyber security which is emerging as one of the most serious concerns of our age. He shared Prime Minister’s belief that trade and investment relations can be scaled up significantly. They both intended to exploit the full potential of bilateral agreements and the India-ASEAN Agreements and looked forward to an early conclusion of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement. Modi said that they would do more in terms of level and complexity of exercises and collaboration in training and defence equipment.
