In a hard-hitting speech delivered at the United Nations General Assembly, the Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj covered a breadth of topics from how ruthless consumption is impacting the environment to terrorism on the global stage. She exhorted nations to come together and isolate countries that back terrorists who deliver “poisonous sermons of hate.

“In our midst, there are nations that still speak the language of terrorism, that nurture it, peddle it, and export it… Those who seed extremist ideologies, reap a bitter harvest. This germ of evil has grown into a hydra-headed monster,” Swaraj said.

“Terrorism is the biggest violation of human rights, a crime against humanity itself. But we must ask, who benefits? If any country does not want to fight against terrorism, we should isolate them,” she added.

Prime Minister Modi tweeted his appreciation for the speech: “Congrats to EAM @ SushmaSwaraj for a firm, effective & fine articulation of a wide range of global issues at UNGA.”
