“Bandung principles put forward 60 years ago, keep their urgency. Then the countries, which did not take part in the Cold War, took a single stand and the Movement was established. Although the Cold War finished, peace has not yet been established. Conflicts and terrorist acts in different parts of the world are threats. Modern arms intensify the situation. That is why we gather to determine response to calls of the modern world”, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad said at the XVIII Summit of the heads of the member states and governments of the Non-Aligned Movement held today, ONA reports.
Malaysian PM stressed terrorism threat is increasing in the world: “We also see various countries support terrorism in different parts of the world. If people are ready to strap bombs on themselves and explode, they are aggressive. It is necessary to talk to them, try to solve their problems. States of these people have been invaded and destructed. They are aggressive because of it. If we don’t eliminate these problems, terrorism will continue. I call on member states to learn causes of terrorism and fight against it.”
