Urging Arab and Islamic leaders to unite and do their share to defeat Islamist extremists, US President Donald Trump acknowledged that India was a victim of terrorism.
The US President made the comments while addressing the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh.
During his speech at the Arab-Islamic-US summit, Trump acknowledged that India was a victim of terrorism and asked countries to ensure that terror groups don’t find sanctuaries on their soil.
The US President urged Arab and Islamic leaders to unite and do their share to defeat Islamist extremists, making an impassioned plea to “drive out” terrorists while toning down his own harsh rhetoric about Muslims.
He assured full US cooperation in tackling the terrorism menace.
“Terrorism has spread all across the world. But the path to peace begins right here, on this ancient soil, in this sacred land,” Trump told leaders from about 50 Muslim-majority countries representing more than a billion people.
The President further pledged to work alongside the West Asian nations to combat extremist ideology in the region as all the countries from the US to India, Australia to Russia – have been “victim of terrorism and have suffered repeated barbaric attacks.”
Without naming Pakistan, Trump said “every country must ensure that terrorists don’t find any sanctuary on their lands.”
