Putting the spotlight on nuclear security, the US President had done great service to global security: PM
Brussels shows us how real and immediate is the threat to nuclear security from terrorism: PM Modi
Today’s terrorism uses extreme violence as theatre: PM Modi
We are no longer looking for man in a cave, but are hunting for a terrorist in a city with a computer or a smartphone: PM Modi
State actors working with nuclear traffickers and terrorists present the greatest risk: PM Modi
Without prevention and prosecution of acts of terrorism, there is no deterrence against nuclear terrorism: PM
Drop the notion that terrorism is someone else’s problem and that “his” terrorist is not “my” terrorist: PM Modi

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today made an intervention during the dinner hosted by US President Barack Obama, on the theme of nuclear security threat perceptions. 

Appreciating the US President for putting the spotlight on nuclear security, the Prime Minister said he had, by doing so, done great service to global security.

Referring to the recent terror attacks in Brussels, the Prime Minister said that Brussels shows us how real and immediate is the threat to nuclear security from terrorism. Shri Narendra Modi called for focus on three contemporary features of terrorism: First, today’s terrorism uses extreme violence as theatre.

Second, we are no longer looking for a man in a cave, but we are hunting for a terrorist in a city with a computer or a smartphone. Third, state actors working with nuclear traffickers and terrorists present the greatest risk. 

Noting that terror has evolved and terrorists are using 21st century technology, the Prime Minister observed that our responses are rooted in the past. He said terrorism is globally networked, but we still act only nationally to counter this threat. He added that the reach and supply chains of terrorism are global, but genuine cooperation between nation states is not.

The Prime Minister said that without prevention and prosecution of acts of terrorism, there is no deterrence against nuclear terrorism. He urged everyone to drop the notion that terrorism is someone else’s problem and that “his” terrorist is not “my” terrorist.

The Prime Minister said nuclear security must remain an abiding national priority, and all States must completely abide by their international obligations.
