The Prime Minister of India, Mr. Modi at the summit spoke about terrorism and responses to it at a global level. The PM identified three contemporary features of terrorism:
Firstly, he said that today's terrorism uses extreme violence as theatre to create terror.
Secondly, 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 smart phone.
Thirdly, state actors working with nuclear traffickers and terrorists present the greatest risk.
The PM said without prevention and prosecution of acts of terrorism there could be no deterrence against nuclear terrorism.
The PM at the Nuclear Security Summit has also underlined the priority India has attached to nuclear security at home, in terms of institutional frameworks, resources for training people, and by continuing to reflect India’s international obligations in national actions. India has pledged a contribution of $1 million to the IAEA nuclear security fund.
