BRICS must end terrorism’s ‘support systems in South Asia’, says Sushma

Posted by

India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday said that the five-member BRICS, which includes China, should work to end terrorism’s “support systems in South Asia,” making a pointed reference to Beijing’s ally, Islamabad.

At a ministerial-level meeting of BRICS here, she said without naming any country: “Terror groups draw sustenance from support systems in South Asia.”

“Terrorist funding, their weapons supply, training and political support must be systematically cut off,” she said sitting around the same table as China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi. “There is a need for collective efforts to disrupt terrorist networks, their financing and movement.”
