It’s Time for Peace and Brotherhood: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated on Friday that terrorism, in any part of the world and in any form, goes against humanity. He emphasized the need for peace, brotherhood, and moving forward together.

PM Modi also highlighted that conflicts and confrontations anywhere in the world affect everyone and do not bring any benefits. He called for a human-centric approach to global issues.

Speaking at the ninth G20 Parliamentary Speakers Summit (P20), PM Modi emphasized the importance of building global trust by removing obstacles.

He stressed that now is the time for peace, brotherhood, and moving forward together. These remarks were made in the context of the recent Israel-Hamas conflict, which has caused tensions in the region.

PM Modi also mentioned the cross-border terrorism that India has faced, resulting in the loss of innocent lives.

He expressed his sadness over the lack of consensus on the definition of terrorism, which allows enemies of humanity to take advantage of the situation. PM Modi called for Parliaments worldwide to work together in combating terrorism.

PM Modi also mentioned that India’s G20 presidency has brought festivities throughout the year, and the recent achievement of landing on the moon added to the celebrations.

He invited all P20 delegates to visit India again next year to witness the general elections, which will involve 100 crore voters.

PM Modi highlighted that India has a long history of conducting elections, with the 2019 general elections being the world’s largest.

He praised the use of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) for increasing transparency and efficiency in the election process.

The P20 Summit is attended by Speakers of Parliaments from G20 member countries and invitee countries.

This year, the Pan-African Parliament is participating for the first time after the African Union became a member of G20.

The summit’s thematic sessions will focus on transformation through digital platforms, women-led development, accelerating Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and sustainable energy transition.
