The Prime Minister described Dr. da Silva as one of the champions of the "No Hunger Project" in Brazil, and called upon the FAO to take the lead in protecting the interests of the poor and farmers at the World Trade Organization. 

The Prime Minister asserted that India does not stand in the way of a rule-based global trade agreement, but India cannot sacrifice the interests and food security of the poor and the farmers. 

The Prime Minister said India looks forward to active participation of FAO in addressing the emerging challenges in Indian Agriculture. He sought partnership with the FAO for capacity-building in food storage. He suggested that some portion of such capacity addition brought about by the FAO`s efforts through international financial institutions, could be earmarked for the food and nutritional requirements of the poorest countries.
