summit: Pakistan and terrorism Perhaps the most important statement made by the prime minister was his sharp attack on Pakistan when he said on Monday "Indeed one single nation in South Asia is spreading these agents ofterror in countries of our region" Soon after Modi’s assertion the G20 countries including India also came down heavily on terrorism as they vowed to tackle all sources techniques and channels of terror financing "We expect the international community to speak and act in unity and to respond with urgency to fight this menace Those who sponsor and support terrorism must be isolated and sanctioned not rewarded" Modi further said in his intervention during the concluding session of the meeting of the world’s 20 strong economies Modi had earlier said that India appreciates the G20’s initiative on combating the financing of terrorism and asserted that all countries should meet the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) standards "Growing forces of violence and

governments" he said On yet another question on the NSG issue he said: "I will not go into the specifics if you read between the lines you pretty much understand when we talk about strategic interests
