“The time has come for us to stop this Global Exporter of Terror. The time has come to isolate sanction this instigator,” said Modi who was attending the 14th India-Asean Summit and the 11th East Asia Summit in Vientiane, Laos.

He told the East-Asian Summit that the world not only needs to target terrorists but their whole ecosystem and “our strongest action should be reserved for those state actors who employ terrorism as an instrument of state policy”.

Modi, without naming Pakistan, maintained that most of the South Asian countries are peaceful path to economic prosperity but only “one country” is “producing and exporting terrorism.
