"The barbaric acts by the ISIS confirms that the developments in that region with regard to terrorism are extremely disturbing. And as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said, that the world has to concertedly take action to finish the scourge of terrorism, because it cannot be restricted within a particular boundary," Kohli told a news agency.
