Antalya: Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy Brey on Monday.

Earlier, pressing for the need to delink terror from religion, PM Modi said that some countries still use terrorism as "an instrument of state policy" and the world must act against radicalisation without any political consideration.

Modi said terrorism is the main global challenge today and "from regions in conflict to the streets of distant cities, terrorism extracts a deadly price".

Speaking here at the G20 Summit, being held against the backdrop of deadly Paris attacks, the Prime Minister said, "Old structures of terrorism remain. There are countries that still use it as an instrument of state policy”, as per PTI.

"The world must speak in one voice and act in unison against terrorism, without any political considerations. There should be no distinction between terrorist groups or discrimination between states. We must isolate those who support and sponsor terrorism; and, stand with those who share our values of humanism. We need to restructure the international legal framework to deal with the unique challenges of terrorism," he added.

He was making an intervention at G-20 Working Dinner last night on the issue of 'Global Challenges Terrorism and Refugee Crisis'.
